Emergency Pet Care

West Houston Veterinary Medical Associates is equipped to provide critical care and emergency surgery during regular office hours. Our state-or-the art equipment, exceptional diagnostic tools, and caring, compassionate veterinarians will be ready to care for your pet in their time of need.

In the event of an emergency, please call our hospital right away at (281) 493-4712 so we know that you are on your way. While we hope that you will never need us for emergency pet care, we recommend adding our phone number and address to your phone’s contact list if you ever need it in a pinch.
