Open 24 hours, 7 days a week. Our emergency/critical care units consist of teams of experienced and dedicated emergency doctors, technicians, assistants, client service representatives, and financial service representatives working together to provide the highest quality care. VERG’s specialty departments – dedicated, compassionate, highly-qualified experts in the fields of surgery, oncology, dermatology, internal medicine, cardiology, and emergency/critical care – collaborate across services to deliver state-of-the-art care within a nurturing environment for both patients and staff.

VERG works closely with your veterinarian, stepping in to provide ER and specialty services that complement their expertise to ensure comprehensive care for your pet. We’ve successfully developed and continue to grow a network of local referring veterinarians and strive for even closer collaboration with individual vets across our borough.

Established in Brooklyn, VERG understands the needs and concerns of our community’s pet owners, and we’re dedicated to providing you, our neighbors, with the highest quality emergency and specialty care.
