The Animal Emergency Center Watsontown

Serving Central Pennsylvania Since 1999

When it comes to an emergency situation, you need to know your pet has a place to go for advanced medical care. At Animal Emergency Center, we're available when your regular veterinarian isn’t. Our emergency animal hospital is open nights, weekends, and holidays to care for pets in Central Pennsylvania who need unexpected urgent care.

The Animal Emergency Center Team

Our team of animal experts treat your pets like family, because that’s what they are. With equal parts compassion and skill at our disposal, you can rest assured your furry friend is in the best of hands. Our animal hospital is the result of a collaboration between ten unique veterinary clinics who came together to address the lack of emergency care available to the community. Established in 1999, we addressed the gap in local emergency care by providing urgent care services after hours as well as on weekends and holidays. Over two decades later, we've become one of the most trusted emergency veterinary hospitals in Watsontown and the surrounding area.

We’re Here When Your Regular Veterinarian Can’t Be

Animal Emergency Center started small; we are now a full-fledged animal hospital designed specifically for emergency cases. No matter what your pet’s emergency—whether they have suffered trauma, are experiencing an allergic reaction, have ingested a foreign object, or any other situation—we have the tools and the expertise to get them back to full health. We will treat every patient like the individual they are because no two pets and no two conditions are the same.

Additionally, we will work with your regular veterinarian to develop an ongoing treatment and recovery plan should your pet require it.
