ER Clinics

(Poison Control info is at the bottom of this page.)

If you feel your pet is having an emergency and our clinic is closed, there are very good emergency veterinary hospitals in our area. Do not waste valuable time. The following is a list of preferred emergency hospitals in our area: 

Veterinary Emergency, Surgery and Specialty Hospital of Palm Beach Gardens
4019 Hood Road
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida 33410
(561) 625-9995
THIS HOSPITAL HAS SPECIALISTS AND ER VETERINARIANS. There are 2 internists (Dr Bueschler and Dr Cameron), 2 wonderful surgeons (Dr Vianna and Dr Flynn), a neurologist (Dr Peters) and a critical care specialist (Dr Lippo) in addition to their ER docs.  They have recently added a much needed dermatologist, Dr Ursula.   We welcome the dermatologist to the area!!!   VSH opened in 2011.   Dr Sutton has been very impressed with this hospital, particularly the internist who owns the hospital.  It is her preferred emergency hospital for the pets of Jupiter and Tequesta. Perhaps the biggest reason Dr Sutton chooses this as her preferred ER clinic is that they have Dr Lippo, a board-certified critical care specialist.  It is located on Hood Road between Military Trail and 1A/811.  It is south of Donald Ross and east of Military Trail.  It on the corner of 1A/811 and Hood Road.
