My boy Jack was in heart failure and I took him emergently in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, it was time to euthanize. Dr. Torres and staff were so kind in helping the process go as comfortable as possible. I am so grateful for your 24 hour emergency services and your help making my baby comfortable as he crossed the rainbow bridge I recommend this team to all. Thank and God Bless! ❤️🙏
I've had to bring my pets here on a couple different occasions. Every time, the staff has been incredibly caring and sincere. It comforts me knowing we can take our pets here in an emergency. Does it cost money? - Yes, but it takes money to keep these services available and to keep good staff. Are there long waits? - Sometimes, but that is to be expected when they are triaging pets. I had to have one of my fur babies euthanized and I cannot thank that vet enough for how comforting and kind she was. The vet we recently had wa... read more
Back in March, Dr. Marshall (from the Manchester location) discovered our cat was in end-stage heart failure during a routine HCM scan and jumped into action to have my cat admitted, stabilized and put on medication.

Everyone I interacted with at this location and at the Manchester location were kind, patient and empathetic. The team discussed my cat’s condition and presented me with options to continue. I opted for the surgery. Dr. Yarnall called me after my cat’s surgery to give me an update on her condition and an overview of how the procedure went. The staff called me the following day to give me another update and arrange a pickup time. They were thorough and patient going over her discharge papers and made sure that any question... read more
My 8 yr old lab had major surgery last Fri and after we got home she would not sit or lay, this went on for hours. The vet that did the surgery doesn’t take emergency calls so my sister found VSS West in Winghaven. I brought her there and they were unbelievably kind and so helpful! Maggie laid down and hr or so after we got home and with their meds she has been resting all weekend. Thank you ALL for caring so much and doing the best for my baby girl. You truly are FANTASTIC!
