At Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital, we hope that you never need emergency services for your pet, but we are available if you do.
What kinds of emergencies can your hospital address?
Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital is equipped to handle all types of emergency care, from illness, bloat, and poisoning to trauma, lacerations, broken bones, bite wounds, and any form of trauma.
When can you provide emergency care?
If your pet needs emergency care, you can call us at (732) 531-1212 or walk in during our regular hours, seven days a week:
- Monday – Friday: 7:30 a.m. – 8 p.m.
- Saturday: 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
- Sunday: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
After these hours, we have trained staff members at the hospital overnight to care for any patients staying in the hospital.
In the few hours that our doctors are not available and the emergency cannot wait for an early morning appointment, we refer patients to one of the two 24-hour practices in the area:
- Garden State Veterinary Specialists: (732) 922-0011
- Red Bank Veterinary Hospital: (732) 747-3636
Hospitalization of Sick or Injured Pets
The doctors and staff at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital take great pride in the care we provide for hospitalized pets. We all have pets of our own, and we know how hard it is to have them spend time away from home. Our goal is to return your pet home to you as soon as possible, but sometimes extensive care and hospitalization are necessary.
All hospitalized pets are closely monitored around the clock, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It is our mission and our guarantee that your pet will be kept as comfortable as possible during his or her stay.
Visitation of Hospitalized Pets
For more than 25 years, we have had an open visitation policy. This means that we encourage clients to visit their pets at any time while they are in the hospital. We request afternoon and evening visitation, but any time that the office is open is acceptable for visitation. We want you to know how your pet is being treated, and that we are doing everything possible to keep your pet comfortable. There are no behind the scenes secrets at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital, just caring and concerned people.
If you are concerned about your pet’s condition or are unsure if the symptoms you see suggest the need for an emergency appointment, please call us to consult with one of our veterinarians. More often than not, concerned pet owners are seeing symptoms that warrant that an examination.
