Central Orange County Emergency Animal Hospital

When disaster strikes, you need to have someone you can depend on and that someone is us. Accidents and emergencies can be unpredictable, but when they happen, they need to be attended to immediately. At Central Orange County Emergency Animal Hospital, we provide emergency care during non-business hours, 6 PM – 8 AM, Monday through Friday. 

Our emergency care facility is designed to help patients who need immediate treatment but do not have access to their regular veterinarians. 

Since most veterinary clinics have limited hours (or none at all) on the weekends, our doors are open at all hours starting Friday at 6 PM until Monday 8 AM. Our animal hospital also operates 24/7 on holidays including: 

  • New Year’s Day
  • Easter
  • Memorial Day
  • 4th of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Day

We understand that emergencies can happen at any hour; that’s why we’re here to accommodate our patients when no other clinics are available. Walk-ins are always welcome, but we also encourage pet owners to give us a call on their way over. Patients are treated depending on the urgency of their situation, not on a “first come, first serve” basis. 

Located conveniently in Newport Beach

If you live in Newport Beach or any surrounding areas, you’ll be relieved to know that we are always prepared to help you and your furry friends in a moment of urgency! Our office is located right off the Corona Del Mar Freeway. You can find us on Campus Drive between Bristol and Quail Street. We’re right by the John Wayne Airport and Newport Beach Golf Course.

As members of the Newport Beach community, we try to work closely with families and local veterinarians in the area to make our city a pet-friendly place. Our dogs and cats deserve the same level of care and research in medicine that we have.

What you should do in an emergency

Pet emergencies are stressful and confusing. Animals can’t quite communicate exactly what’s wrong or how they feel, so it’s up to owners to interpret certain behaviors and essentially guess what’s wrong. To make your job as a pet owner a little easier, here are some general actions you can take to guarantee your pet’s safety until you can see a veterinarian. 

First, approach your pet slowly and calmly. Animals can become aggressive or agitated when they feel pain. Once you are sure your pet won’t hurt you, pick up your animal carefully, making sure to support the neck. 

Next, you’ll have to assess the issue to see what’s going on. Every case is different!

  • If your pet has a seizure, let the episode end completely before taking your pet to the vet.
  • If your pet is bleeding, apply pressure to the wound to prevent blood loss. 
  • If your pet is choking, examine their mouth to see if you can remove it by pulling the tongue forward or administering the Heimlich maneuver. 
  • If your pet has a heat stroke, move it to a cool, shaded area and give it water. 

Don’t wait to get your pet to an emergency vet! The longer your animal goes without treatment, the worse the problem can get. Our 24/7 emergency care facility will treat your animal immediately and board it overnight if it needs time to recover.
