Our Mission: To provide excellence in patient care as an extension of the region’s primary veterinary care practices through emergency, critical care and specialty services.
The Veterinary Emergency Clinic is an emergency and specialty care provider committed to providing service when your primary care veterinarian cannot.
We provide service from two locations. The main hospital, known as the “VEC South”, is located in the heart of downtown Toronto at 920 Yonge St. The clinic provides emergency and critical care services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays. Specialty services in Internal Medicine, Oncology, Surgery, Neurology/Neurosurgery, Dentistry, Dermatology/Allergy, Ophthalmology and Anesthesia are available at this location by referral.
The “VEC North” located at 280 Sheppard Ave. East, is easily accessible from highway 401 and operates weeknights from 7:00 pm to 8:00 am for emergency services only, as well as providing 24-hour service on weekends and holidays.
During all hours of operation at least one emergency clinician and veterinary technician are onsite at all times.
Onsite parking is available at each clinic, as well both are well-situated on subway lines offering easy access via the TTC.
The Veterinary Emergency Clinic has been in operation since 1974, working in conjunction with your veterinarian.
