About The Center

The Center for Specialized Veterinary Care is a hospital unlike any that you and your pet have experienced! It's an animal hospital where the emotional needs of the pet's entire family are as important as the superior veterinary care we provide. Our board-certified veterinary specialists work together to offer a team approach to care. What makes us different? We work closely with your family veterinarian until we find an answer together and that is why your vet refers you to us as their preferred specialists. Additionally, we have the Compassionate Care Center - The world's first veterinary care center where you can stay overnight with your pet during hospitalization.

OUR MISSION: The Center For Specialized Veterinary Care is a 24 hour veterinary emergency, critical care and referral Center dedicated to providing the best possible veterinary care available. We believe in working closely with pet owners and referring veterinarians and inviting them to be a part of their pet and patient’s care. We have the world's first center where pet owners can stay with their pets at all times while the pet is hospitalized. We provide the highest level of veterinary care and offer pet owners the most options when facing medical challenges in order to ultimately allow our patients to enjoy the best possible quality of life. We recognize that pets are an extremely important part of many family's lives and that they deserve and can have the the same level of care that their human family members expect for themselves.
