TEMPORARY SMALL ANIMAL EMERGENCY SERVICE UPDATE: To continue to provide top-quality care for your pets, ensure the wellness of our staff and minimize wait times, we are temporarily limiting admissions through our small animal emergency service to critical patients in need of urgent hospitalization, and to patients from the immediate Gainesville area. Please call before bringing your pet into the clinic; at times that we are at capacity, we may direct you to other local resources to ensure care for your pet.
