Emergency Referral - Columbia

Referral to Pet+E.R. Columbia

Please use this form to send referrals to our Columbia location.

If you’d like to refer a patient to our Towson location, complete the Pet+E.R. Towson referral form here.

At this time, Pet+E.R. can only accept patients who qualify as Level 1 or Level 2 triage status. We kindly request that your referred patient meets the criteria for Level 1 or Level 2 triage and that stable, non-urgent patients are counseled about alternative treatment locations such as your primary care hospital or another walk-in emergency facility. We can provide a list of other facilities upon request.

The patient triage levels that Pet+E.R. can currently accommodate for treatment are defined as follows:

  • Level 1, or STAT cases, are defined as patients who cannot wait for medical treatment without grave consequences on the patient outcome.

  • Level II or Critical/Urgent triages are patients for whom treatment can be delayed for only a short period of time, such as a few hours or less.
