No matter how well you care for and protect your pet, emergencies can arise at any time. Despite your best efforts, it only takes a split second for a pet to dart in front of a moving vehicle, ingest a toxic substance, or suffer an accidental injury. You also have no way of knowing when your pet may come down with a sudden unexplained illness or experience any other type of serious problem.
At Best Care Animal Hospital, we understand that emergencies don’t always pop up during “normal” business hours. That is one of the many reasons why we have chosen to remain open on weekends and until 8 PM most evenings. When your pet needs emergency and urgent care in Charlotte, we will be here when you need us most and help you avoid a costly trip to an emergency hospital.
