Animal emergency and critical care services for your pet in Jacksonville, Florida

Life is unpredictable, and emergencies often strike when we least expect them. This is the case not only for humans but also for our furry friends. If your pet has an emergency and needs urgent or critical care, the veterinary team at San Marco Animal Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida, is here to help with a caring and compassionate approach.

Common animal emergencies

Pets are lovable and loyal but can sometimes get themselves into precarious situations, ingesting toxic items or getting in accidents. Additionally, your pet’s health may unexpectedly decline due to illness or other reasons. Our team has seen it all. We have experience handling a variety of urgent pet issues, including:

  • Traumatic injuries
  • Acute illnesses
  • A sudden decline in health for pets with chronic illnesses
  • Ingestion of toxic or foreign substances

If you are facing an emergency situation with your pet, we will give you advice over the phone when you call us to help deal with the issue before you can bring them to the office. We will see your pet promptly and welcome walk-ins and transfers from overnight emergency facilities so that your pet can continue to receive the observation and treatment they need. We are equipped with in-house laboratory services so that we can obtain a quick and accurate diagnosis for your pet.

Care for your pet when they need it most

San Marco Animal Hospital is open seven days a week—with no additional charge for emergency visits on weekends—and we are open until 6 pm every day except Sunday. We know that not every veterinarian can provide care for pets in an emergency, which is why we serve families with established pets and new pets who haven’t seen us before. We will take the time to explain the recommended diagnostic and treatment options for your pet and use a shared decision-making approach to arrive at the right treatment plan for your family’s needs. We will also communicate regularly with you during your pet’s stay with us, keeping you up-to-date on their progress.

If your pet has an emergency and you are located in the Jacksonville, FL area, please don’t hesitate to call us at 904-516-9767. We are here to help!

I took my cat to San Marco Animal Hospital and would highly recommend them. Dr. Gutta spent quite a bit of time talking to me about my cat’s health and preventative care. The staff was friendly and even called to check on my cat after his vaccines. Excellent service, and caring providers!
