Our Dedication to Quality Veterinary Care

Our founders opened Pet+E.R. in order to support Baltimore area veterinarians and pet parents by providing emergency and critical care services after normal office hours. To this day we remain focused on our founders' mission. We know how important seconds can be in an emergency, which is why we strive to serve our community by practicing cutting-edge medicine any time you need us, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

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 Towson. 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.
