Welcome to Animal Emergency & Specialty Center (AESC)! Services at our 24-hour facility include specialty care and emergency care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
While referrals for specialty cases are not required, we do recommend that you first visit your family veterinarian in order to receive initial guidance. Appointments for Surgery, Cardiology, and Oncology must be made in advance and can be scheduled by calling directly at 775-851-3600. Currently phone consultations are not offered.
In the case of emergency, if your family veterinarian is unavailable, please contact us immediately. List of symptoms that require immediate emergency attention.
When faced with a veterinary emergency, call ahead to the office with the animal’s breed (or approximate size), age, present symptoms and any other health problems. While on the phone, confirm the exact location of the clinic.
Upon arrival, your pet will be assessed for injuries first by a nurse and then by a doctor. After the Doctor has performed an exam we will prepare a cost estimate for you to review and approve before treatment is performed.
