01/13/2024 We had to take our 14yr old Min Pin here because he had jumped off the couch and did the spilts earlier in the day, he was fine up until 8pm. We drove from Arcadia to Lakewood to bring him in because his right hind leg was swollen and he was not walking on it. When we got there, they put us in a room right away. The entire staff was incredibly polite and caring, I would recommend this vet ER any time!! We decided to go here instead of Port Charlotte location due to more Drs on hand and so glad we did. He is doing ... read more

Brought a sick dog in at 9:55am on Sunday January 7. Maybe I assumed wrong but I was under the assumption that a DVM was on staff and present 24/7. We saw a capable tech but had to wait until after 12 for a doctor to come in. I called before leaving my house and specifically asked and was told a doctor was in. After the wait of two hours (which seemed much longer since I had been up all night with said sick dog) everything worked out. The doctor and the tech were very nice, thorough, capable and caring. In the event of an em... read more

Hi Ms. Rockholt - Thank you for the feedback. We do our best to communicate accurate wait times to clients, although it can be ever changing in the ER if and when critical patients come in.

I cannot thank the staff enough. My Charlie was terminally ill and took a sudden downhill turn. The staff handled this horribly sad situation with such kindness, thoughtfulness, and caring environment. We are out of town and wanted to take our Charlie home. They called the crematorium and they expedited the process Then when I picked Charlie up he was in a beautiful wooden box, which was in a velvet bag with a certificate and sympathy book I cannot say enough about my experience Thank you so much

The staff that worked the night shift on 8/19 was the nicest set of people I have dealt with. I sadly had to put to sleep my baby boy Chance. They were so kind and so accommodating and made my dad and I feel as comfortable as possible. Thank you all for doing what you do, I know it isn’t easy. 

Business response:

Hi Danielle, thank you so much for the kind words. We're very sorry for the loss of your baby Chance, but thank you for letting us take care of you all during this very difficult time. Please let us know if there's ever anything else we can do for you.

We have to come to the ER twice and both times everyone has been fantastic. They were very gentle with our kitties and very understanding and truthful with us. We highly recommend them to anyone that needs to make an emergency visit. 

Business response:

Ms. Thiel, thank you very much for the kind words. While we know that no one wants to make a visit to the ER, we are happy to be here for you and your kitties whenever you need us!

One of the hardest things to do is letting go of your fur baby. This early morning we let our sweet Bella cross over. She fought so hard against her cancer, she was so brave. Kaylee and Dee were so sweet and compassionate during this difficult time. Dee was so loving towards Bella it made my heart ache just a little less. And Kaylee spent time with out talking and just being so kind. I can’t thank you both for being there for us and allowing Bella to cross over as peacefully as possible. 

Business response:

Amarilla, thank you so much for your kind words. We know sweet Bella was very special to you, and we're so glad we were able to provide some comfort during this very difficult time. Please don't hesitate to give us a call should you need anything.

Great experience. Our regular vet refused to fit our dog in for an emergency situation and ER UP fit us in and got her back on the right path. Good team, courteous staff - definitely recommend. 

Business response:

Thank you for your recommendation, Frank! We appreciate your kind words for our staff.

They took my dog right away. I just dropped her off and the doctor called me with what was wrong within 30 minutes. She spent the night and received awesome care. The technicians and doctors were friendly and spent quality time with me explaining everything. I recommend this Animal ER at University Park. 

Business response:

Thank you, Kathleen! Our team strives to provide compassionate, efficient care and are glad to know you had a positive experience. We hope pet parents never need emergency care, but we're here for you!
