Here For You When Your Veterinarian Can't Be

The Animal Emergency Center’s Services

Specializing in Emergency Veterinary Care in Watsontown for 20+ Years

Animal Emergency Center Watsontown provides pet emergency care services when your regular veterinarian is unavailable. This means we are open after hours on weekdays and all day on weekends and holidays. You can find our hours here.

We started providing Central Pennsylvania with emergency veterinary services in 1999 as a way to address the lack of emergency care available in the community. By providing emergency care, pet diagnostics, pet therapy, and other specialty services, Watsontown’s pets are now protected around the clock.

If you have questions about the services we offer, please don’t hesitate to contact us at (570) 399-0403 or read our FAQ page for more information.

Our Services

Animal Emergency Center possesses state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and offers a number of therapeutic and specialty services. We are equipped to perform diagnostic procedures such as bloodwork and ultrasounds, therapeutic procedures such as oxygen therapy, and specialty services like blood transfusions and endoscopies.


If you think there may be something wrong with your pet, but aren’t sure what, our facility is equipped with the diagnostic tools to figure out what may be bothering your furry friend.


We offer two types of therapy services for animals: oxygen therapy and fluid therapy. Oxygen therapy is often used for patients with respiratory distress, congestive heart failure, and head trauma. Fluid therapy is commonly used with patients undergoing anesthesia, or those experiencing dehydration.

Specialty Services

Animal Emergency Center can provide a number of other veterinary services, including surgery, treatment of infectious diseases, and more. Please read our specialty services page to learn more.

How Can I Schedule a Service?

Because we provide emergency medical care to animals, we typically admit customers on a walk-in basis. However, you are welcome to contact us any time to schedule an appointment or simply ask questions about our services.
