Capital Area Veterinary Emergency and Specialty (CAVES) provides the highest quality 24/7 emergency veterinary and critical care service for pets including dogs, cats and exotics in the greater Concord, New Hampshire area. As our name implies, we are a veterinary emergency hospital designed to meet your pet's needs when a veterinary emergency arises and your regular veterinarian is unavailable. No appointment is necessary for an emergency although it is helpful for you to call us prior to your arrival so we know to expect you.
Since we work in cooperation with your regular veterinarian, our goal is to stabilize, support, and treat veterinary emergency patients until their regular veterinarian becomes available for transfer. For critical cases or those needing continued observation we offer continued veterinary care 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
IN AN EMERGENCY CALL US AT 227-1199 OR 877-929-1199
