Emergency Vets and Urgent Care in Phoenix, AZ

Welcome to VEG Phoenix!

Sometimes it’s obvious when your pet needs immediate help. But sometimes they just seem “off.” That’s where our emergency vets in Phoenix 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 Veterinary Emergency Group difference, with our open floor plan hospitals, pet-parent participation, and an emergency-focused team that’s always ready to expect the unexpected.

Our animal emergency hospital is located within minutes of Glendale, Peoria, Mesa, Scottsdale, and Tempe. VEG Phoenix is located on E. Camelback Rd., between N 21st St. and N 22nd St.

Parking for our Phoenix emergency vet clinic is located near our front door and includes an accessible parking space, with additional parking around back.

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.

If you’re a Good Samaritan who found a stray, the best place to bring them is to your local GP veterinarian, a shelter, or rehabilitation center. If these options are not available, we can scan for a microchip to help you locate an owner. Our mission is helping people and their pets when they need us most, and that includes strays! If the stray you found needs emergency care, we’re here to help.
