The concept of this emergency clinic originated with Ocala veterinarians who created the Pet Emergency Treatment Service Corporation (PETS) in 2012. In a unique collaboration, the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine and PETS joined forces to serve pet owners in the Marion County region. The purpose of the clinic is to bridge the gap during time periods when veterinarians’ offices are typically closed. Our goal is to provide a caring, compassionate environment for critically ill animals and their families.
We always recommend calling a clinic first to check that they are able to take your emergency. The hours shown above are their emergency hours and the clinic may not be open to the public during certain hours (i.e. overnight).
