Emergency Pet Care

Animal Medical Center of Austin is equipped to provide critical care and emergency surgery during regular office hours. While we hope that you will never need us for emergency pet care, we recommend adding our phone number and address to your phone’s contact list--just in case.

In the event of an emergency, please call our hospital right away at (512) 832-4119 so we know that you are on your way. This will give our team the time needed to prepare for your pet’s arrival.
