Who We Are

Pet+E.R. has been providing Maryland pet owners with expert veterinary emergency and critical care services since opening as Animal Emergency Center in 1986. Since then our animal hospital has changed names, expanded, and moved into two state-of-the-art facilities in Columbia and Hunt Valley. To date, Pet+E.R.'s hospitals are the only two 24-hour VECCS-certified critical care facilities in Maryland. This certification reflects the level of excellence we provide to our patients, 24/7.
