Emergencies are best handled in an emergency setting.  These hospitals are set up to triage and treat cases urgently with trained staff, supplies, and equipment that general practices often do not have.   Don't waste valuable time trying to reach your primary veterinarian, go directly to an emergency facility, and when you can, call your vet for your records to be shared with the emergency hospital.

Urgent Vet. (904) 640-9300.      With hours from 3pm-11pm on weekdays and 8am-10pm on weekends, Urgent Vet is equipped to handle urgent problems and minor emergencies.  You can conveniently reserve a spot online.  Their services do not include surgical emergencies or anything that requires hospitalization.  For severe injuries or illnesses, Urgent Vet can help stabilize your pet for transfer to a full-service emergency hospital.  Urgent Vet does not carry antivenin for snakebites because this treatment requires hospitalization.
