Emergency Services | About Us | FAQs



emergency services The After Hours Veterinary Emergency Clinic has been in the business of providing emergency and critical care services for small animal patients after hours since 1976. We are the longest standing after hours emergency veterinary clinic in Greensboro, North Carolina, and also provide emergency veterinary services for Winston-Salem, High Point, Burlington, and the Piedmont Triad region. If you are uncertain as to if your pet's problem can wait until your daytime veterinarian's office is open, please feel free to contact us. Examples of urgent care conditions include infections, bleeding, toxin ingestion, allergic reactions, trauma, fractures, vomiting or diarrhea, seizures, and inability to urinate or defecate.

We utilize the latest technologies in the diagnosis and care of our patients. On site diagnostics available at AHVEC include Sound-Eklin digital radiography, ultrasononography, video endoscopy, blood chemistry and complete blood count machines, and electrolyte, blood gas, and coagulation analyzers. These tools are routinely used to determine the cause of your pet's problem. In addition, we have dedicated surgical suites on site and emergency surgical procedures are routine at AHVEC. An extensive library of information is available to our veterinarians as well as referral consults with board certified specialists in critical care, cardiology, internal medicine, radiology, ophthalmology, and neurology to aid in reaching a prompt and accurate diagnosis. Keep in mind that our veterinarians have dedicated their career to the practice of emergency medicine and we have been in the business of providing after hours emergency veterinary services in Guilford County and the surrounding communities for more than 35 years.

Stray and Wildlife Services

The After Hours Veterinary Emergency Clinic provides wildlife medical services for injured animals free of charge to the Good Samaritan that seeks our help. Wildlife species that can be saved are placed with licensed wildlife rehabilitators in preparation for re-release to the wild. Please note that any animal brought in for such services must be legally released to the clinic for care and the Good Samaritan that brings them in must absolve themselves from all rights of ownership and knowledge regarding the outcome of the case. This service is utilized often by the public and taking follow-up calls to release information regarding these cases ties up our staff and takes them away from the medical cases that so greatly require their care.

stray & wildlife services Stray animals are taken in on a case-by-case basis that is largely determined by our occupancy at the time the animal is presented. In general, we only accept injured stray pets that require medical attention. As with wildlife, any animal brought in for such services must be legally released to the clinic for care and the Good Samaritan that brings them in must absolve themselves from all rights of ownership and knowledge regarding the outcome of the case. In some instances, we will accept healthy stray animals but this is usually restricted to animals that have a tag or a microchip. We make every effort to place stray animals that do not have an owner in homes or send them to a shelter or rescue organization to be adopted. If you would like to use this service for an animal that you have found, please feel free to contact us to see if we can help.
