Emergency CareWhen you have animals, emergencies happen. Unfortunately, they are a part of life. Here at River Oaks Veterinary Clinic & Boarding Kennels, we are here to help you and your pet!

We know that emergencies (of any kind) are very stressful for both you, your family, and your pet. It is our goal to help you in any way that we can. Our staff is dedicated and well trained to handle emergencies of all types.

One thing that we do ask is that you to do is please call ahead, at (703) 580-0707, so that we are prepared for you when you walk in our doors! This allows us to be better prepared to take care of your pet when you come in.

For any emergencies that occur when we are not available to help, we trust the following emergency centers. They are open in the evenings, weekends, and holidays when we are closed!
