First, call our hospital to alert our staff of your emergency. Call us at          253-983-1114 so our Receptionist can guide you through options for fastest treatment. If our hospital is at capacity our Receptionist can guide you to other area hospitals that are available. 

Emergency services are available at 24 hours for your pet’s unanticipated medical needs. Our emergency department is staffed by experienced emergency doctors and technicians and is overseen by two board certified emergency and critical care doctors. 

When you arrive your pet will be assessed (triaged) by a licensed veterinary technician. Any unstable pets will be immediately brought to the emergency doctor for treatment. As soon as assessment and stabilization has begun, the emergency doctor will call you to discuss options for treatment, diagnosis, and monitoring. For non-critical patients this wait time can vary and you will have the option of leaving a deposit for your pet's treatment.

COVID-19 Community Update

If you have an Emergency:

of focused experience and diverse specialties. A group constructed to offer integrated and complete care to the Puget Sound veterinary community. With roots in Critical Care, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Oncology, Radiology, and Surgery - our careers have followed different paths. But the common thread that wove us together remains the uncompromised passion for helping animals lead happy and productive lives. Our story isn’t told in the surgery room or on the black and whites of an x-ray. It’s told when a game of fetch is played or a warm lap is filled again. The Summit Veterinary Referral Center was created because this singular solution requires answers to many different problems, and we are this collective.
