Of course, your pet's health is a priority, no matter the hour, and emergencies can happen at any time. As a pet owner, it’s good to have a plan in place, in case of a serious injury or sudden illness. Our dedicated team of experienced veterinarians and staff are here to be a part of that plan and provide time-sensitive, compassionate care for emergencies.

Urgent Care at Both Locations During Business Hours

When a pet requires emergency care during our normal business hours, call the closest location and our team will do what they can do get you in. However, Animal Medical Centers of Loudoun is not staffed 24/7, so if you have after-hour emergencies, please contact one of the hospitals listed below.

  • Monday–Friday: 7:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday: 8:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
