Our mission at Vet Care Express is to be an indispensable resource to pet owners, Veterinarians, Emergency Veterinary Hospitals, Fire and Police departments, Animal Services, and Humane Societies to provide the highest level of reliable, compassionate, professional transport service possible for pets.
Just like with humans, it is critically important that pets are handled, right from the beginning, by trained, compassionate, and experienced professionals using the proper equipment to ensure the best possible outcome. Handling incorrectly or creating additional stress could cause more harm than good - nobody wants to further harm their pet. Just like with humans, driving your pet to a hospital could put you both at risk - you're too anxious and distracted to both drive and comfort your pet, you're not trained or equipped to provide emergency care, and you may not know who can best care for your pet in your current situation.
Our service is available 24 hours/day M-F, Sat. until noon, Sunday Closed. Vet Care Express is Veterinarian recommended, fully licensed, insured, and professionally equipped with oxygen, masks, stretchers, gurneys, backboards, cages, and first aid supplies. We are also fully certified in pet CPR and first aid through the American Red Cross. We monitor our patients throughout transport and communicate condition status to the receiving Veterinary facility.
