Because of our special relationship with Guilford College Animal Hospital, AHVEC clients with a referring veterinarian from another practice will have distinct ADVANTAGES over using a traditional stand-alone emergency clinic with limited operating hours or specialty referral center where costs may be prohibitive.
For clients of neighboring general practices you will not be forced to transfer and transport your critical pet back and forth from the regular veterinarian to the emergency clinic for ongoing critical care cases because of each facilities limited operating hours. These patients can stay here at AHVEC for continued care when necessary where our daytime staff at GCAH can care for your pet during the day.
For more stable patients that are best served by returning to their primary care veterinarian at an outside facility (most common), you have the added convenience of transferring your pet back to your regular veterinarian on your timeline. You don’t necessarily have to get here by 8AM to pick up, as it would be with other stand-alone emergency clinics.
Your pet receives the best possible care because WE CARE enough to tailor a diagnostic and therapeutic protocol to your individual needs, after educating you about your pet's condition and the diagnostic and therapeutic options that are available. We pride ourselves on EDUCATING CLIENTS so that they can make the decision that is in the best interest of their pet AND their family.
