Compassionate, quality emergency, critical, and specialty care for when your pet is ill or injured.
We know how much your pet means to you. When he or she is sick, hurt or uncomfortable because of a medical condition or injury, you want to soothe, fix or alleviate the pain. As an emergency animal hospital so do we.
Because your pet’s health is important to us, Newtown Veterinary Specialists’ emergency veterinarians are available to help, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. As the only certified Level II Emergency & Medical Care Center in New England, we are always available to treat your beloved pet for these common illnesses as well as many other emergencies:
- painful behavior
- collapse or weakness
- breathing problems
- difficulty walking
- diarrhea or constipation
- vomiting or gagging
- allergic reactions or swellings
- straining or inability to urinate
- toxicities, ingestions or exposures
- excessive bleeding or bruising
- unexplained fever, hypothermia or other illness
If your pet has a medical emergency, we suggest that you contact your primary veterinarian first. If they are unavailable, then call us so we can be ready to help immediately upon your arrival. If there’s no time to consult with your primary veterinarian or call ahead to us, please bring your pet in immediately. Our emergency doctors limit their practice solely to emergency medicine, making them uniquely qualified and experienced to help your pet in any emergency situation.
What makes Newtown Veterinary Specialists (NVS) emergency services even more unique is the close working relationship of our emergency doctors and our veterinary specialists. At any time, on any day or night, our emergency doctors are able to consult with an NVS board-certified surgeon, internist, criticalist, dermatologist, oncologist, ophthalmologist, or behaviorist to determine the best care for your pet.
We inform your family vet about your pet’s condition and treatment by providing copies of all medical records, laboratory findings, and treatment plans within 24 hours of your pet’s visit. You and your vet will be regularly involved in helping to direct the ongoing care of your pet, whether at NVS or by transfer back to your family veterinarian’s clinic.
