Celebrating 5 Years Helping Pets

Guardian Veterinary Specialists celebrates five years
of caring for the pets in our community.

Our mission is simple: save the lives of as many pets as possible.
Thank you for entrusting us with the care of your pet.

We also wish to thank our team members, general practices, rescue groups, animal welfare organizations, vendors, and veterinary professionals, that have made our success possible.

24-Hour Animal Emergency & Critical Care and Veterinary Specialty Services

“Yes” is an amazing word. It opens doors. It represents agreement, support, and encouragement. It’s affirmative and hopeful. It makes things happen.

And saying “yes” is what we’re all about here at Guardian Veterinary Specialists.

“Yes” to making sure as many pets as possible can receive the medical care they need. “Yes” to enabling pet owners to obtain appropriate treatment so their pets can regain the highest-possible quality of life, even under the most challenging circumstances.

We do this by keeping our doors open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to provide lifesaving emergency care for pets in a health crisis. Providing specialty expertise to diagnose and treat pets with complex, critical or chronic diseases. Investing in sophisticated technology to diagnose pets quickly and accurately. Offering flexible payment options to pet parents so they don’t have to choose between their wallet and their pet’s life. Giving a 50% discount for care we provide to rescue/shelter animals. Collaborating with referring veterinarians to ensure their patients have fast, easy access to advanced care. 

We want to help every pet patient who needs our help and we’ll go to great lengths to make it happen. To say “yes” to delivering exceptional care, without exception.

How can we say “yes” to you?

How To Keep Your Pets Safe This Holiday Season

The first dusting of snow. Twinkling lights dangling from trees. The aroma of baked goods wafting from the kitchen. They all mean one thing: It’s the holiday season, a time to share with furry loved ones. It’s also a good time for pet parents to remember that what makes this time of year special for them might not be so festive for their four-legged companions.
