When your pet has an emergency we understand how alarming that is!
Established in 1975 as Peninsula Emergency Veterinary Clinic (PEVC), PARC emergency provides 24-hour emergency critical care for pets. The in-house laboratory, digital radiography, ultrasound, and red blood cell/plasma banks enable our emergency clinicians to get crucial diagnostic information and establish treatment plans very quickly. Because we are a 24-hour emergency and specialty care facility, your pet will have access to board certified specialists without unnecessary delays.
Should your pet require hospitalization, our team of emergency clinicians, licensed veterinary technicians, and critical care trained veterinary assistants and receptionists are on site 24 hours a day ensuring safety and comfort for your loved one. Once your pet is stabilized, they can be transferred to your primary care veterinarian for follow-up care. We value the human-animal bond and are dedicated to providing compassionate emergency care.
Our goal is to keep you informed of your pet's condition and to provide the best medical care. In addition, we will keep your primary care veterinarian informed of all medical and diagnostic results that your pet receives.
