Meet Our Team


The Emergency Veterinary Clinic of SW Missouri was established in 1997. The idea originated from the desire of area veterinarians to provide good quality care for their patients regardless of the time of day. These Veterinarians formed a corporation to establish an after hour "Emergency Veterinary Clinic" dedicated to emergency and after-hour critical care. Our facility is equipped to handle all areas of small animal emergencies.

The Emergency Veterinary Clinic is open weeknights, weekends, and holidays to treat any illness or trauma that your pet may experience when your veterinarian may not be available. An emergency and critical care veterinarian and assistants are both present during all hours of operation. Our modern facility is equipped with a complete laboratory and advanced x-ray unit, giving us the ability to quickly and accurately diagnose many emergency diseases and conditions.

About Our Clinic


Prompt Service

Our doctors and staff are compassionate and caring professionals that are extremely well trained in recognizing and treating a wide range of emergency situations.

In particular, we are adept at performing triage as new cases come into our clinic, especially when multiple cases arrive within a short period of time. This means that if your pet is experiencing a serious, life-threatening emergency you will be seen as soon as possible when you arrive at the clinic. However, if your pet has a non-life-threatening emergency, you may be asked to wait on us as we care for a more seriously sick or injured pet. By allowing us to work through triage, you will be granted a more satisfying and thorough examination of your pet while possibly allowing us time to save the life of another family's beloved pet. We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
