All of our veterinarians have substantial experience in emergency medicine and are proficient in stabilizing critical cases.

Highly Impressive
Catherine and Heather from Vancouver

A few years ago, we had to make the decision to let my pet rat Cheeto undergo euthanasia due to a tumor that had taken over her body and was causing her increasing distress. Most vets don't even offer services for rats. EMPAH not only was courteous and empathetic, they also took care of each and every concern we had. They made a donation to animal research in our pet's name and sent us a sympathy card signed by all the staff.Truly a heartwarming and incredible experience in a hard time. I wouldn't consider anyplace else.
