Emergency Transfers

4 emergency referral Dog Exam Thomas and Dr W

Most cases come to our animal hospital’s specialists through veterinary referrals. Veterinary Specialty Center in Buffalo Grove is also home to a 24-hour emergency animal hospital and critical care facility. We also manage and staff the emergency room at VSC at Illinois in Chicago. Some cases that come through our emergency animal hospital requires the expertise of both our specialists and advanced diagnostic team.

As we do with our referral cases, our emergency animal hospital’s highly-trained veterinary team keeps a pet’s primary care veterinarian updated when that case arrives at Veterinary Specialty Center and as it progresses in our hospital. Although most emergency cases don’t require our specialists and are quickly sent back to their own veterinarian’s care, our team is available on cases that do need our specialist’s expertise. We know that a trip to the emergency animal hospital can be stressful, so we make the process as easy as possible for both you and your pet.
