The Capital Area Veterinary Emergency Service (CAVES) provides highest quality 24/7 emergency and critical care to vets and their clients in the greater Concord, New Hampshire area. As our name implies, we are an emergency facility designed to meet your pet's needs when an emergency arises and your regular veterinarian is unavailable. No appointment is necessary 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 emergency patients until their regular doctor becomes available for transfer. For critical cases or those needing continued observation we offer continued care 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Prompt veterinary care gives your pet the best chance of a successful outcome and recovery. If you have a question about your pet's health, don't delay care. Here are some indications and situations when you should always seek urgent treatment:
