About Us

We are an Emergency and Intensive care facility located in Shreveport, LA.  Our facility is equipped with digital radiograph equipment, ultrasound, surgical facilities, oxygen therapy, a cat-friendly ward, in-house bloodwork, and much more to offer quick and effective stabilization medicine.  We work with your primary care veterinarian to get your pet on the best possible road to recovery.  We strive in helping you understand your pet’s problems including all diagnostic and treatment options available to your dog or cat.

Our clinic is seven blocks north of Byrd High School between Prospect and Dalzell.  Please see our hours of operation, telephone number, and address in the sidebar of this page.  There is no staff at the clinic during the day Monday through Friday.

Costs:  There is an $80.00 emergency visit and exam fee from 6pm until 11:00pm. After that time, it increases to $110.00. On Saturday and Sunday the fee reverts back to $80.00 at 12:00pm.  On holidays, the fee is $110.00 all day.  This fee includes the emergency visit fee and exam only. It does not include any diagnostics such as bloodwork or x-rays, treatment, medications or surgical procedures.

Payment is due at time of service. We do not offer any in-house financing.  We accept all major credit cards including Care Credit.  We do not accept checks.  Care Credit can be applied for online at www.carecredit.com or by calling 1-800-365-8295. It is a credit card accepted by most veterinarians.  If you are approved, they will give you a 16 digit card number that you can use immediately.

Animal Emergency Clinic operates solely on funds collected from the treatment and care of your pet. Because we are not subsidized by any organization private or public, we must adopt a strict payment policy in order to provide the best possible care for your pet.  If your pet is hospitalized, a deposit of usually half of the estimated costs is required.  Payment in full is due at the time your pet is released from our care.

How it works:  Your pet will be taken to the hospital area and you will remain in the reception area while he or she is being examined.  After the veterinarian has completed the exam, you will meet with them in a consultation room to discuss what treatment is recommended including a monetary estimate.  You will then be able to decide what course of treatment you will follow.

We do not do routine veterinary procedures such as vaccines, spay or neuter, ear or tail cropping.

We treat dogs and cats only.
