About After Hours Veterinary Emergency ClinicThe After Hours Veterinary Emergency Clinic, PA (AHVEC) is the longest standing emergency veterinary clinic in Greensboro. When your pet’s regular veterinary office is closed, AHVEC provides emergency veterinary services for Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, Burlington, and the Piedmont Triad Region of North Carolina. AHVEC was started by a board of local veterinarians in 1976 in an effort to provide services for their patients in need of critical care after hours. The clinic was originally located on Spring Garden Street in Greensboro and remained there until 1996 when the practice moved to a brand new state of the art facility specially designed for the needs of an emergency and critical care veterinary practice. The practice remains at that location at 5505 West Friendly Avenue in Greensboro, and it is the site of the childhood home of Dolly Madison, wife of the fourth U.S. President James Madison.

The After Hours Veterinary Emergency Clinic has been a staple of the Greensboro Community for more than thirty-five years. With a high average case load of patients treated on an emergency basis per year, AHVEC is specially prepared to provide state of the art emergency care for your dog, cat, or other small animal pet. Our veterinarians are doctors with a special interest in emergency and critical care medicine. Should you have an emergency with your pet after your regular veterinarian has closed for the day, feel comfortable knowing that the After Hours Veterinary Emergency Clinic has been in the business of handling such emergencies for more than 35 years and our specially trained staff will do everything that they can to make your experience as pleasant as possible.
