What We Do

Pet+E.R. provides emergency and critical care veterinary medical services for Maryland pets 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – including nights, weekends and holidays.

Our hospitals in Towson and Columbia are fully staffed at all times and our teams of experienced emergency veterinarians, technicians and support staff are committed to the care and treatment of your pet. We operate collaboratively with Chesapeake Veterinary Referral Center, a group of multi-disciplinary veterinary practices, so your pet can receive comprehensive medical care under one roof.

Pet+E.R. works to keep the lines of communication open with your primary veterinarian by transferring your pet’s records as soon as your visit is complete and following up with you after your visit.


Brought my 10 week old puppy in for vomiting. Turned out that he had Parvo. I was told of the options for treatment and after multiple follow up visits, the little guy is doing great!!! All of the staff was extremely friendly. Thanks to Pet+E.R., my puppy has a chance to live a long healthy life.
