Emergency Veterinary Services

Emergency vet services are a fundamental cornerstone of our commitment to comprehensive pet care. Your pet isn't going to take "normal business hours" into consideration. Accidents do happen, and when disaster strikes, that is when you need a trained veterinary staff ready and able to help. So, we know that we've got to be ready. This is why you can always rely on our emergency vet care team to be here for you. 

Our full service facility is located at:

755 Rutherford Avenue

Rutherford, NJ 07070

(201) 877-5029

Rutherford Animal Hospital is staffed by highly experienced members of our veterinary team 7 days a week. If your pet has a medical emergency during your primary care veterinarian's regular office hours, we recommend first contacting him or her for a professional recommendation. If your veterinarian is not available, or requires a critical care facility, we recommend you immediately bring your pet to an emergency animal hospital for treatment.

We recommend Oradell Animal Hospital in Paramus New Jersey:
