Emergency service

Veterinarians are here 24 hours per day and no appointment is necessary in emergency circumstances.

We are centrally located within a few miles of the NJ Turnpike, Route 322 and 295.

Our doctors and staff will coordinate closely with your primary care veterinarian, so that we exchange medical records to ensure we have the information we need to care for your pet and so that your veterinarian’s office maintains complete records following your visit at our hospital.

  We have been bringing our Bubba to the Swedesboro Animal Hospital for 11 years, ever since he came home with us. He has received excellent care for everything from nail trims and ear cleaning to cancer surgery. The doctors and staff are first rate and I have recommended them many times.

  First let me say I rarely give five star reviews, it has nothing to do with the service received. Our elderly cat has been going very slowly downhill, and discussions with our regular vet led to a wait and see attitude. On a Sunday morning she suddenly could not... read more
