Pet Emergency and Urgent Care in Denver, CO

Welcome to VEG Denver!

Sometimes it’s obvious when your pet needs immediate help. But sometimes they just seem “off.” That’s where our emergency vets in Denver come in. From vomiting to complex surgeries, we treat emergency and urgent care needs for all kinds of pets—even avians and exotics! Discover the VEG difference, with our open floor plan hospitals, pet-parent participation, and an emergency-focused team that’s always ready to expect the unexpected.

Our Denver pet emergency hospital is located at the intersection of E. Colfax Ave. and Harrison St. The entrance to our Denver pet hospital faces E. Colfax Ave. Access our parking lot from Harrison St., on the side of our building. Accessibility parking and a ramp for wheelchair navigation are located in our parking lot. If the lot is filled, street parking is available.

If you need assistance getting your pet into the hospital, call ahead—one of our VEGgies will meet you at the door. Your pet will receive urgent vet care and you never have to leave their side.
