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.)

Dear Bryan,

Many thanks to you and your kind gift to the foodbank last month – what a difference you are making! Thank you for caring about a neighbor, student, senior and family in need. Our community is stronger because of you.

Many Thanks,

Vermont Foodbank

Merlot was a BEVS ER patient TWICE in only two months, back in 2006. First in November, for respiratory infection (inhaling Lysol spray) and again in December, for a concussion after she dove under a treadmill. We really didn’t expect her to see her first birthday, with all the issues she had in her young life, but she made it! (Knock on wood!) And she is doing great 13 years later.

THANKS for being there when we needed you!!

Thank you for saving my life this week and for phoning yesterday to see how I was doing. You were a real angel to me. I’m looking forward to many more years of a happy life, thanks to your care. Gratefully,
