Level II Emergency and Critical Care Facility

East End Veterinary Center is proud to announce its reaccreditation as a Level II VECCS Certified Facility. 

The Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (VECCS) is an organization comprised of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and practice managers committed to advancing knowledge and upholding superior standards in veterinary emergency and critical care.

VECCS offers a facility certification program to encourage facilities to provide exceptional emergency and critical patient care. The purpose of this certification is to recognize those hospitals that meet and exceed the minimum standards and guidelines published by VECCS. VECCS does this to raise the standard of care while also increasing public and professional awareness in veterinary emergency and critical patient care.

East End Veterinary Center is a fully-staffed, 24-hour emergency and critical care facility for dogs and cats. Equipped with experienced emergency staff and state-of-the-art technology, we are prepared to assist your pet at a moment’s notice. At East End Veterinary Center, an emergency veterinarian is on staff 24 hours a day, 365 days a year–your pet is never alone. While an appointment is not necessary for emergency treatment, a call ahead of  time is appreciated so that we can prepare for your arrival and ensure that your pet is seen promptly. We also work in close coordination with your family veterinarian to ensure that your pet receives the collaborative support he or she needs.

If your pet is injured or suddenly develops concerning symptoms, this constitutes a veterinary emergency. Many pets do a good job of hiding pain or discomfort and oftentimes, injuries or sickness can go unnoticed for too long. It is important to act quickly if you feel your pet is not quite acting him or herself, with some common symptoms including: lethargy, reduced appetite, hiding, avoiding putting weight on a limb or side, difficulty breathing, difficulty urinating, weakness, whining, or shaking. If you suspect your pet is suffering from a medical emergency or is demonstrating unusual behavior, please call us immediately at 631-369-4513 or stop in; an experienced staff member will be able to determine whether or not your pet requires treatment.

The following is a list of common pet emergencies:

  • Hit by a car
  • Having trouble urinating, or is not producing urine
  • Unwilling or unable to eat or drink
