Located in Columbia and staffed with highly-skilled doctors and veterinary professionals experienced in emergency medicine and surgery, Palmetto Regional Emergency Hospital for Animals provides emergency and critical care for pets until 9 pm, seven days a week.

While our doctors are only here until 9pm, we always have staff working 24/7 to take care of your pets during the doctors' off-hours.
