EMERGENCY VETERINARY HOSPITALS NEAR SVVH
If you have an emergency outside of our regular business hours, Stream Valley Veterinary Hospital recommends that you call the nearest veterinary emergency facility. The closest pet ER to us is Animal Emergency & Critical Care at TLC - The LifeCentre.
Unfortunately, pets will sometimes eat food or non-food items that can be dangerous or even toxic. In case of such an emergency, we're here for you (and, outside of our business hours, so is Animal Emergency and Critical Care at TLC in Leesburg)!
You'll also want to contact a pet poison control hotline, such as:
