You and your pet may be referred to our hospital by your family veterinarian. Similar to human medicine, specialists are needed when a pet requires a more advanced diagnosis and treatment. Board-certified veterinarians have completed a 3 year residency program, met specific training and caseload requirements, performed research, published their research and passed a rigorous examination.
For 40 years, the mission of United Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Animal Clinic has been to provide Santa Clara County with quality, compassionate emergency veterinary care. In 2011 we became the first 24/7 emergency-only hospital in the area. This expansion was an acknowledgment of the evolving nature of the critical care niche of veterinary medicine. In January 2015, we became United Veterinary Specialty & Emergency. This re-branding is the culmination of an extensive behind-the-scenes effort to meet the demands for veterinary specialists in the San Jose and Bay Area.
Veterinary specialty services are available Monday through Thursday, and on a case-by-case basis on other days. Compassionate, high-quality emergency and critical care is available 24/7 at our Campbell hospital. Our San Jose hospital cares for emergency patients on weekday overnights, and 24 hours on weekends and holidays.
Our team at United Veterinary Specialty & Emergency works closely with the Bay-area veterinary community and the pet families that they serve. Your family veterinarian will refer your pet to us when they need advanced diagnostic tools to identify your pet’s illness or to offer more advanced veterinary care than they are able to offer. Or, your pet may have come through our emergency room, or you may have researched veterinary specialists online. No matter how you and your pet have found us, our specialty and emergency hospital can and will help your pet.
Once your pet is referred to us, our specialists will stay in contact with your family veterinarian so that he or she can play a part of diagnosing and treating your pet. This partnership continues even after we return your pet to your family veterinarian’s care.
