Opened in May 2011, VE+CC filled a void in animal care for Las Vegas, providing the only fully staffed, dedicated 24 hour emergency and critical care facility. Our highly trained doctors, including Nevada’s only board certified emergency and critical care specialists, are here 24 hours a day to make sure your pet gets the best and most immediate care possible.
After emergency care has been administered, hospitalization may be needed for the recovery process. A veterinarian who is specifically trained in emergency and critical care is better prepared to manage complex cases that are medically challenging and particularly stressful. Our team of dedicated doctors and licensed nurses monitor patients around-the-clock to ensure they receive the care they need.
VE+CC is located adjacent to the Las Vegas Veterinary Specialty Center (LVVSC), allowing for rapid consultation with specialists in surgery, internal medicine, ophthalmology, cardiology, oncology and neurology. The combination of VE+CC and LVVSC allows for rapid intervention, diagnosis and treatment, across a broad range of specialties, without the need to transport pets to other facilities, which can be dangerous at times of trauma or critical illness. All the doctors at VE+CC and LVVSC work together to provide the highest quality of collaborative medicine to ensure your pet is treated with the highest level of care.
We are dedicated to setting the standard of excellence in veterinary emergency and critical care by treating our patients and their owners with compassion, and maintaining thorough communication with referring veterinarians and their clients- relationships we greatly value.
