Emergency Care You Can Count On
Emergency situations can arise at any time, so it’s important our clients have an after-hours resource for the quality veterinary care their pets deserve. We’re proud to say that when the veterinarians and staff at the Animal Hospital of Rocky Hill call it a day, the folks at the Animal Emergency Hospital of Central Connecticut take over.
Animal Emergency Hospital of Central Connecticut
Utilizing the same facility as the Animal Hospital of Rocky Hill, the Animal Emergency Hospital of Central Connecticut employs its own doctors and veterinary staff. They not only serve as 24-hour emergency care providers to Rocky Hill patients, but other vet clinics as well.
