The Animal Emergency & Referral Center is a state-of-the-art facility in central Mississippi for advanced emergency and surgical care and is open 24 hours a day.

AERC is an extension of the primary care veterinarian—we work as a team to provide the most comprehensive and advanced care possible. As part of the team approach, all medical information is shared with the primary care veterinarian so that a complete medical record is available through the primary care veterinary clinic. AERC primarily treats canine and feline patients and does not provide routine or elective health-care procedures such as vaccinations, spay/neuter services and dentistry.

Call to schedule an appointment with one of our specialists. Please bring any relevant radiographs and medical records to your appointment. Your family veterinarian may also fax medical records or email radiographs to the specialists at AERC.

The emergency service of AERC is open to receive referral transfer cases and walk-in emergencies after hours and on weekends—365 days a year. It is staffed by veterinarians dedicated to providing the highest quality emergency care for their patients. It is our goal to provide superior customer service so we can meet the needs of patients, owners, and referring veterinarians.

The emergency service works with our on-staff veterinarians, as well as in consultation with faculty of Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine, to provide the highest level of care for emergency patients needing advanced diagnostics and treatment.
