About Us

In June of 2003, Veterinary Emergency Service grew due to a need in the community. First, pet owners needed a quality 24-Hour Urgent Care veterinary facility to provide loving and critical care for their pets. Secondly, Madison-area veterinarians needed a resource to which they could refer patients when their office was closed, or for those animals who required advanced diagnostics or specialty procedures that could not be performed at their office. We have since expanded to include 3 locations, and have introduced specialty services to become Veterinary Emergency Service & Veterinary Specialty Center (VES/VSC).
In 2014 our Middleton facility became one of only three hospitals in the state of Wisconsin to achieve Referral Accreditation status with AAHA. This accreditation applies to the specialty areas of ER/critical care, surgery, internal medicine, and oncology.

Here at VES/VSC, we are prepared for animal emergencies 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Whether you bring your pet in at 2:00 o'clock in the afternoon or 2:00 o'clock in the morning, we'll have doctors, certified technicians, and assistants on duty to help you in your time of need. In addition, our specialty staff has extensive experience in emergency and critical care, surgery, cardiology, oncology, internal medicine and advanced procedures. All of our specialists provide the highest quality care for patients with complicated or specific diseases. Primarily, we treat small animals such as dogs and cats, pocket pets, and exotics.
Family and local veterinarians rely on Veterinary Emergency Service & Veterinary Specialty Center as a resource for state-of-the-art pet care. It’s a partnership that provides the best for you and your pet. When it's necessary for your veterinarian to refer a complicated or critical case to VES/VSC, we are able to facilitate their needs and schedule the required procedures.
