About The Emergency Animal Center

Caring for Your Pets as If They Were Our Own in Watsontown

Animal Emergency Center was founded in 1999 by people who love animals as much as you do. For over 20 years, we’ve committed ourselves to providing the best after hours emergency care for the precious pets of Watsontown and Central Pennsylvania.

By offering emergency veterinary care of any kind, diagnostic services, therapy, and other specialty services, we are able to serve the pets of our community in a way that keeps both them and their owners happy and healthy.

If you’re in need of emergency care for your pet or other after-hours veterinary services, call us at (570) 399-0403.

Our Story

Animal Emergency Center is the result of a collaboration between 10 veterinary clinics who came together in 1999 to address the lack of emergency care available to the local community. Our common purpose was to address the gap in local emergency care by providing urgent care services after hours as well as on weekends and holidays.

Over two decades later, our modest clinic has transformed into a full-fledged, state-of-the-art animal hospital designed specifically for emergency cases. We’ve become one of the most trusted emergency veterinary hospitals in Watsontown.

Compassionate, Professional Care for Your Furry Friends

As pet owners and lovers ourselves, we understand how upsetting it can be when your beloved animal is hurt or sick. We always treat pets with care and compassion and do our best to be comforting but straightforward with their owners. We will keep you updated every step of the way and provide you with the information you need to properly care for your pet once you leave.

We promise to be there for you in your animal’s time of need. For emergency medical services you can trust provided by people who care, call Animal Emergency Center at (570) 399-0403.
