The Best Care For Your Best Friend


Burlington Emergency & Veterinary Specialists

As Vermont’s only specialty and 24/7 emergency animal hospital, Burlington Emergency & Veterinary Specialists (BEVS) provides a level of care you simply won’t find anyplace else in the state.

From expert emergency and critical care 24 hours a day to advanced veterinary specialty and referral services—including surgery, internal medicine, oncology, rehabilitation, radioiodine therapy, and acupuncture—BEVS animal hospital is a trusted partner not only to you and your pet, but also to the region’s primary care veterinarians.

Our board-certified internal medicine, oncology, and surgery specialists are available by appointment Monday through Friday 8AM–5PM.

Is Your Pet Having a Medical Emergency?

Here at BEVS, we are experiencing a high demand for emergency veterinary services, so wait times may be extended. Please expect a longer wait during high-demand hours, including nights and weekends. We will assess each pet as you arrive and use our triage priority levels to care for the most critically injured or ill pets first. We appreciate your patience as we, like you, navigate through these challenging times.

If you are concerned or unsure if your pet needs emergency care, please call us at (802) 863-2387. We may be able to advise you on how to keep your pet comfortable at home until your veterinarian can see you. If your dog or cat has ingested something poisonous, please call your veterinarian or the 24/7 Animal Poison Control Center at (855) 764-7661 for help immediately. (A consultation fee may apply.)

Just wanted to thank the staff from early last Saturday morning when I brought my poodle, Sparky, in for treatment after he ate chocolate.  He is doing just fine after a rough couple of days.

Thanks for your advice and caring.  Now the chocolate is in a container that he cannot get into!

He is back to work…

To BEVS, Especially Dr. Harnett, Katie & Michelle,

Thank you so much to everyone at BEVS, especially Dr. Harnett for providing us with guidance around Bruschi’s new and difficult new diagnoses, Katie for treating Bruschi and interacting with him the same way we do and understanding his huskyisms and Michelle for saving his life when he was in crisis, without you he wouldn’t be here today.  Everyone at BEVS was so helpful and supportive and was patient with the numerous daily phone [calls] we made to check-in on Bruschi and ask a million questions.  Also, thank you for continuing to be a support even recently, while home, when we weren’t sure about his symptoms and how to best treat him.  His diagnoses aren’t easy but with all the support and information we’ve been given we feel more confident in our ability to care for him and provide him with the best quality of life possible, especially now that we got a positive test result for MG.  We couldn’t be happier with the level of care he received at BEVS and if we have any serious issues in the future we won’t think twice about where to take our dogs.

Thank you again from all of us, 

Christine, Eric, Bruschi  and Layla

Dear Team Veterinary Emergency Service,

Sir Webley Bunting here, would like to Thank You All, for the care you have given him July 14th. He is well on his way to recovery from pneumonia.  Today he was able to go on his daily walk  twice, of 1/2 mile path trail and felt like eating blackberries on his way back to the house.

Thank you, Emergency Team, for your 24/7 care of him.

Mr. & Mrs. Irvin Bunting
