Over my 19 years as an emergency veterinarian there is a parting statement I have heard over and over from clients......"I hope we don't need to see you again." Thankfully most folks say this with a smile. Of course none of us want our pets to have an illness or injury that requires emergency care. In reality these things do occur, frequently after your family veterinarian has closed. Hopefully there is a small comfort in knowing we are here for you if you do need us. Our caring and skilled doctors and staff will treat your pet with compassion and integrity to help your pet and you through whatever crisis may arise. Dr. Erik Madison

In 1993, local veterinarians recognized a real need in Collier County for an after-hours emergency veterinary hospital. They perceived that a centrally located specialized facility, which had emergency personnel ready to respond, would make critical emergency care more readily available after office hours. The Emergency Pet Hospital of Collier County was established. The hospital has since grown, along with our community and progressed with advances in veterinary emergency care.

The hospital is not intended to serve as a substitute for your family veterinarian, but rather, as an independent extension for emergency care. Clients are referred back to their regular practices when follow-up care is needed.

Due to the nature of an emergency facility, patients arrive at any time. Emergencies are treated in order of severity. Please understand that patients may not be seen on a first come, first serve basis.

We have a number of resources for you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Browse around and look at our articles and pet videos. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention. If you want to ask a question call 239-263-8010 or email us and we'll promptly get back to you. Our Naples veterinarian office is very easy to get to, and you can find directions on our Contact Us page. You can also subscribe to our newsletter which is created especially for Naples pet owners. In between your veterinary visits, your pet will benefit from you reading these free informative articles.

At Emergency Pet Hospital of Collier County, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "We are from out of state and our dachshund was in pain, and of course after normal vet hours. Everyone here was very kind and the Dr. was so gentle with her. It was a huge comfort in hearing he also had dachsunds and was very knowledgeable about the issues they have with their backs. He found trouble in her vertebrae up in her neck, so she's on meds and the instructions we have will hopefully end the pain, or at least keep her comfortable until we get back to Wisconsin. Thank you for taking the time in explaining things to us, and for reassuring us she will be safe to take the trip home."
