Is This An Emergency?

Bleeding, breathing difficulties, seizures, or shock are all reasons your pet should be seen immediately. Find out how VSH can help.

More About Emergency Services

In preparation for Hurricane Florence VSH is keeping a close eye on the weather and will post any changes in our hospitals operating status. At this time we are planning on business as usual for the week which means all specialties will remain open for appointments and all locations will be open 24/7 for emergencies.

Royce had a near death allergic reaction to medication when he was 4 months old. He was in VSH’s care for a full week. VSH nurses and specialty staff gave me constant updates, allowed me to ask all kinds of questions and eased my mind throughout this entire stressful process. I truly thank the entire VSH staff for making Royce and myself feel comfortable and welcomed into the VSH family. Thank you so much for everything.

VSH provides Darius with high quality medical care in the comfort of a small hospital environment. Because of the many specialty services offered with the hospital umbrella, his complex diagnostic process, surgery, and long term oncology care could all be accomplished through one practice. Additionally, VSH offers 24 emergency care which gives me peace of mind knowing if and when medical complications arise, Darius will be cared for by the same doctors, nurses, and support staff already familiar with his health history.

From the time we were referred to VSH by our primary vet they have been nothing but great to us and Sissy. If it had not been for them, we would not have her with us today. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone if their pet is in need of emergency care.

Sammy was rushed to VSH after being hit by a car. We were so very fortunate that we could take Sammy to VSH. The doctors and nurses along with the staff went above and beyond all our expectations and thanks to them we can say that Sammy is catching Frisbees again. We thank all the VSH staff from the bottom of our hearts for giving us our furry baby back.

VSH took excellent care of Earlene during her treatment. And when it was finally time to let my sweet girl rest, VSH provided us both with such comfort and compassion in our last few days together.
