Welcome to the Pueblo Area Pet Emergency Hospital, an after hours veterinary facility that provides emergency medical care for your pet.  We are an emergency and critical care hospital that was established through the cooperative efforts of many of the Pueblo Area veterinary practices. The emergency team works closely with area veterinarians to provide after hours hospitalization and immediate care.  We communicate regularly with your pet’s primary care veterinarian and work closely with all involved to provide the best care available.

We provide emergency and critical care for companion animals including dogs, cats and some pocket pets.  The hospital is equipped to handle all emergency and urgent care situations that may arise with your pet.

The following symptoms are definite emergencies and require immediate medical attention:

  • Your pet isn’t breathing or you can’t feel a heartbeat.
  • Your pet is unconscious and won’t wake up.
  • Traumas such as being hit by a car, falling from a height or experiencing a blunt force, even if the animal is not showing any ill effects!
  • Your pet has been vomiting or has had diarrhea for more than 24 hours, or is vomiting blood.

  • Your pet is bleeding from the eyes, nose, or mouth, or there is blood in urine or feces.
