Morris County NJ Emergency Vet Hospital for Sudden Illness or Injury

Morris County Emergency Vet Hospital

During office hours, Community Animal Hospital is well equipped and available to handle emergencies that may arise with your pet.

Unique among animal hospitals, we keep many unusual or perishable emergency drugs on hand for a wide variety of circumstances. Unlike other animal care facilities, we are able to treat animals on site for uncommon and acute emergencies, such as antifreeze intoxication.

In addition, we are well equipped to handle emergency surgery, diagnose sudden illnesses, and offer critical care and hospital services to small animal pets.

“My rabbit‚ Roscoe‚ has been seen by Community Animal Hospital for the past nine years. Whether it is a routine visit or emergency‚ the staff is always responsive and helpful. No matter how busy the office is‚ I never feel rushed and everyone is willing to take the time to answer questions and explain things‚ so I understand what Roscoe needs and what I need to do to keep him healthy or help him through any health issues. I am so grateful to have found you‚ and I know that it is because of the excellent care he has received from you that I have been able to have so many wonderful years with Roscoe. Thank you!” ~
