About Us

The concept of this emergency clinic originated with Ocala veterinarians who created the Pet Emergency Treatment Service Corporation (PETS) in 2012. In a unique collaboration, the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine and PETS joined forces to serve pet owners in the Marion County region. The purpose of the clinic is to bridge the gap during time periods when veterinarians’ offices are typically closed. Our goal is to provide a caring, compassionate environment for critically ill animals and their families.
