Our History

Since 1999, Burlington Emergency Veterinary Specialists (BEVS) has had a unique and rich history caring for companion animals of the Champlain Valley.

BEVS evolved from being a part-time ER service for 12 veterinary hospitals, then grew to serve over 40 animal hospitals, followed by expanding hours to nights and weekends, to today’s 24/7 emergency facility, complete with board-certified veterinary specialists in surgery, internal medicine, neurology, ophthalmology, dentistry, and exotics. In March 2019, we opened our new, ultramodern facility – with over 17,000 square feet, 12 exam rooms, an intensive care unit, three high-tech surgery suites, CT/MRI units, and 70 experienced, dedicated, and compassionate team members.

BEVS is the largest emergency and referral veterinary hospital serving Vermont and upstate New York. In fact, BEVS is the only 24/7 emergency and specialty hospital in the state of Vermont.
