If you have an emergency, Peninsula Pet Clinic and our skilled emergency vet clinic team are here for you. 7 days a week until 10pm!

As one of the only emergency animal hospitals in the area, we know that emergencies are unpredictable and don’t always happen during standard business hours. We also realize your pet is a part of the family and we are here to treat them as such, with care and compassion during life’s scariest moments. That’s why we are open 7 days a week until 10pm with emergency surgery and critical care facilities and skilled veterinarians to help you with any emergency you may run into with your furry loved one.

Emergencies we help treat frequently include:

  • Ingestion of foreign or toxic items
  • Distended abdomen
  • Wounds from accidents or fights with other animals
  • Weakness & lethargy
  • Bloody stool or issues urinating
  • Lack of appetite and constant vomiting
  • Swelling, hives, or rashes
  • Snake envenomation
  • Shortness of breath
  • And more… we’re here for the unpredictable stuff, too.

Our state-of-the-art emergency animal hospital is fully equipped with life-saving technologies from two on-site labs for immediate blood work and results to a low-exposure x-ray machine and ultrasound technology. This way, we can diagnose from the inside out and make sure your beloved pet is on the path to recovery in no time.

Whenever life throws you a pet emergency, give us a call at (310) 833-1111 and let us know you are on your way and we will be here to help you on a walk-in basis – no wait. Not sure if it’s an emergency? Still, give us a call, we will give a complimentary consultation to advise you on the next steps to ensure your pet is in perfect health.

Life savers!! My dogs fur started falling out in January. I called Peninsula Pet Clinic and Diana picked up the phone. I told her everything and she genuinely cared about my situation. She had me bring my dog up immediately and got him checked out. My dog was always scared of going into Veterinary clinics, but not this one. Everyone was so friendly we both felt at ease. I am blown away with this clinic. They have completely made us feel like part of the family. Bottom line, my dogs skin, and health are getting back to normal because Diana was so helpful and eager to get me in. I truly owe her and the rest of the staff a great deal of gratitude for everything they have done for Cody and I.

We had an emergency on a Sunday with our precious English bulldog. We were welcomed right away and our dog was treated and quickly diagnosed as needing emergency surgery. The staff her stabilized our dog overnight so that we could take to our own surgeon the following morning. Our dog could of died if this kind vet clinic was not here for us on a Sunday. Can’t thank them enough.

I took my cat for a physical exam because she seemed sick and I’d heard really good aspects of this place. Fortunately, I did because they were so helpful, caring, understanding and knowledgable. I couldn’t have asked for better customer service and care for my cat from the staff and Dr. Van Volkenburgh. I’m so thankful for the care they gave to my baby girl and had no issues with my experience so I highly recommend coming here.
