The MU Veterinary Health Center is the only 24-hour veterinary emergency hospital in our region and is one of 24 Level 1 small animal emergency hospitals in the United States, as certified by the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society.
Our Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care Service is staffed by at least one licensed veterinarian and skilled veterinary technicians 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We can perform critical diagnostics at any time, and stabilization, intensive care hospitalization, isolation and around-the-clock monitoring are provided as needed. Complex diagnostic and surgical procedures are also performed for emergency cases.
To continue providing state-of-the-art care to Missouri pet owners, additional funds are needed. Your support will allow us to hire key personnel, purchase life-saving and patient care equipment, and maintain pet-friendly and efficient facilities, thus ensuring that we are able to continue this crucial service without interruption.
