Unlike many other emergency and specialty veterinary centers across the country, Berks is open and fully staffed 24 hours per day, every day, including holidays.

At Your (Referral) Service

Your trusted family veterinarian is critical to your pet’s preventive care and ongoing health. Although many general practices offer advanced services and a high level of care, sometimes circumstances arise that require the involvement of a specialist or necessitate round-the-clock patient monitoring. By referring your pet to a specialist at Berks, your veterinarian is making sure that your pet is receiving the best care and attention for his or her specific medical condition.

Your pet’s primary veterinarian may refer him or her to us for specialized help in any of the following areas:

Our referral specialty consultations are focused on excellence in patient care. By providing a fast and accurate diagnosis for your pet, we can target a treatment to meet his or her specific needs and help to ensure the best possible outcome.
