Emergency & Critical Care

Emergency & Critical Care

Our Emergency Veterinary Service and Critical Care is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays!

Our Emergency team is compassionate, professional, and provides the highest standard of care for your pets. Please follow the steps below to ensure we can quickly attend to your pet.

  1. When you dial our number, 561-741-4041, extension 1, please explain your pet’s problem to our veterinary technician. Calling before you bring your pet in for treatment will give our staff time to prepare for your pet’s individual situation and requirements, also enabling us to give you instructions for transport, if necessary.
  2. When you arrive at JPESC, we will examine and treat your pet as promptly as possible. Life threatening emergency cases will be treated first, regardless of order of arrival.Unfortunately, this may interrupt an examination in progress or cause a less critical patient a brief wait. Please be assured that our staff will work as quickly as possible to attend to all patients in a timely manner.
  3. If this is your pet’s first illness or emergency : Remain calm. Assess the situation. Remove the animal from any chance of further harm. BE CAREFUL – even a loving pet may bite and scratch when in pain.

Please let us know if you have any questions about this process, our anything regarding our emergency veterinary service – we are here to help!

Kelly and “Jake”

Thank you all for helping Jake and getting him through emergency surgery. He is home being ‘protected’ by his pack. He is doing well and we are so grateful to you all.

‎Bob and “Calvin”

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You…so much for taking care of Little Calvin last night. You could tell I was a wreck and you went out of your way to communicate to me that he was in good hands (I’d say the best hands!) and that he would be cared for. And you totally did as promised!

Thank you for putting a nervous cat daddy at about as much ease as possible. I’ll never forget the kindness of both Laurell and Dr. Sigman!

Did I mention, thank you!
