We accept emergencies, ‘walk-in’ urgent cases, direct transfers and referrals from family veterinarians. Click here to download our new patient form.

Mountainside Animal Hospital and 24-hour Emergency Services is always here for you and your pet. We work in a complementary fashion with your regular family Veterinarian to provide high-quality veterinary emergency and critical care medicine when your regular Veterinarian is unavailable. Once your pet’s condition is stabilized, you have the option to refer back to your regular veterinarian for ongoing care.


We ensure that the most comprehensive emergency and surgical care for your pets is available when needed. To do so we either refer out to, or bring in-house, board-certified specialists for complex surgeries or procedures, as required. We are open 24 hours a day 7 days a week for emergencies and walk-ins (no appointment necessary).
