Veterinary Emergency Service is permanently open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for emergencies that involve your dog or cat.

The Balmesvet Emergency Service is staffed 24 hours a day by professionals to attend to private emergencies or those referred by other vets.

Balmesvet’s Emergency Service works non-stop to attend to sick patients or those who require immediate medical attention. As a leading Veterinary Hospital, we have a team of professionals with extensive experience and specific training.

The main objective of our veterinarians is to assess the patient to determine the seriousness of the problem and to proceed with stabilisation, treatment and any diagnostic tests that may be required, working in coordination with the internal medicine, intensive care and relevant specialist teams.

We have a comprehensive and advanced veterinary hospitalisation and ICU service, with all the necessary tools for the stabilisation and treatment of our patients, as well as an operating theatre ready 24 hours a day for any emergency that may occur. Our facilities have been designed to provide the maximum possible comfort for your pet during their recovery.
