AFTER HOURS EMERGENCIES
Emergencies for your pet don’t always happen during normal business hours when your primary veterinarian or Veterinary Surgery Center of Sarasota is available. There are animal emergency hospitals equipped to handle all veterinary emergencies overnight, on weekends, and during holidays.
