Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale Emergency Vet

Just 30 miles north of bustling Miami, Florida lies the coastal town of Fort Lauderdale. It is beloved by college students looking for a vibrant spring break scene, families on vacation, wildlife enthusiasts and people seeking a beautiful permanent home. Whatever your preference, there is something to love in this location.

The county seat of Broward County, Fort Lauderdale’s population was listed as 182,760 as of the 2020 census. The city was named after a series of military installations that were used during the Second Seminole War. Because of its 165 miles of inland waterways, Fort Lauderdale is known as the Venice of America. It hosts over 100 marinas and more than 50,000 registered yachts. Although its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and its 3000 hours per year of sunshine make it a mecca for tourists, the city is also known for manufacturing, technology, finance, film and television production, among other things.

Perhaps you came to Fort Lauderdale with your pet to enjoy its seven miles of beaches and its many picturesque canals. Or maybe you just love the sunny, subtropical climate and the many opportunities for recreation and employment that are available in this South Florida suburb of Miami. Whatever the reason, you and your animal companion have found a temporary or permanent home that you will not soon forget or want to leave. That’s because it has everything you need, including the Animal Emergency Urgent Care Center (AEUCC), a Fort Lauderdale Emergency Vet you can trust and count on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Our Services

Every pet owner should keep the contact information of an emergency veterinary hospital close at hand in the event of a crisis. So often, accidents, severe injuries, sudden illnesses and chronic disease flare-ups occur when your primary animal doctor is unavailable or are beyond the scope of a routine medical practice to treat. For these reasons, AEUCC is perfectly suited to be your Fort Lauderdale Emergency veterinary hospital. Our compassionate, experienced staff are proud to provide your injured or ill pet with a comprehensive set of services designed to optimize their well-being through the best possible diagnostics and medical interventions. The services we offer include the following:

  • Lab work. As is the case with diagnosing medical conditions in human beings, the laboratory yields a treasure trove of information that our staff can use to determine the nature and extent of your pet’s injury or illness. Available services through our lab include complete blood count (CBC), blood chemistry, urinalysis and coagulation profiles. Because we process our tests on-site using state-of-the-art technology, results are available within minutes to make fast and accurate treatment possible.
  • Diagnostic imaging. In addition to examining a pet’s blood and urine, our staff uses various technologies that take pictures of the animal’s internal organs and processes to obtain added vital details aiding in triage, diagnosis and treatment. We offer radiography (X-rays), ultrasonography, electrocardiography and Doppler ultrasound to further augment what we have learned through lab work and clinical interventions.
  • Cardiology. Heart disease and other cardiac issues can be seriously debilitating or even fatal if they are not treated promptly and properly. Our Fort Lauderdale Emergency center is equipped with a full range of cardiac monitoring and treatment technologies to bring about the best outcome for your dog or cat. After our compassionate staff completes a thorough physical examination and consultation with you about your pet’s medical history and current symptoms, our doctors determine the next best steps to learn the nature and extent of the heart issue. These may include blood pressure recording, resting electrocardiography, ambulatory electrocardiography and/or ultrasound electrocardiography combined with ongoing monitoring and consultation with a specialist if the situation warrants.
  • Hospitalization. If your furry companion’s condition is serious enough to require ongoing monitoring, intravenous medications, surgery or other interventions that cannot be done at home, we are fully equipped to provide the full spectrum of hospitalization care. Our team of doctors, technicians and specialists will ensure that your dog or cat is comfortably welcomed into a clean and safe environment that reduces as much as possible the chances of contracting further infections or communicable diseases. The nature and extent of monitoring and nutritional support will be customized to meet your pet’s specific needs throughout their stay. Both you and your primary veterinarian will be kept informed of the animal’s progress and evolving treatment plan to ensure a smooth discharge and continuity of care.
  • Surgery. At AEUCC, we have the first-class medical facilities that allow us to perform everything from the simplest tooth extraction to the most complex of cardiac operations. We start with a thorough intake process that consists of a physical examination, consultation with you and the gathering of laboratory and imaging results. If surgery is recommended, we will ensure that your pet’s pain is managed before the operation starts. Post-surgery, the medical team will provide ongoing monitoring and treatment throughout your pet’s stay with us.
  • Clinical treatment. This term refers to the full set of conversations, tests and procedures that we use to arrive at a complete and accurate diagnosis. With this information in our possession, our medical team can create the best treatment plan for your pet that is designed to minimize pain and maximize positive results and healing. Just some of the interventions we may recommend include fluid therapy, nutritional support, obesity management, pain management, medications and surgery.
  • Trauma. Vehicular accidents, snake bites, animal attacks and falls are just some of the situations that can require immediate and sometimes complex medical attention for your pet. Our diagnostic and treatment teams will quickly perform a battery of tests and interventions designed to alleviate pain, provide accurate care and promote well-being and healing. When necessary, we also collaborate with outside specialists , and we partner with your regular veterinarian at every step of your pet’s diagnosis, treatment and discharge.
  • Intensive care. When your pet’s life and health are on the line, our intensive care unit provides the critical care interventions and monitoring that are essential to prolong life and promote healing. Pain relief, monitoring, diagnosis and state-of-the-art treatment interventions are available to your pet day and night, and our compassionate team of professionals is committed to keeping in touch with you at every stage of your furry companion’s treatment.
