Your pet's recovery continues with YOUR veterinarian
The Calusa Veterinary Emergency Center is NOT a replacement for your regular veterinarian; we are merely an after-hours option in case your pet needs emergency or critical care.

In fact, many of the area's veterinary practices refer their after-hours and weekend emergency cases directly to us.

Once your pet's condition has stabilized, we will collaborate directly with your pet's regular doctor to create a recovery plan that they can oversee. In certain situations, your pet will even be transferred from Calusa to your veterinarian for continued monitoring of their condition.
