During our regular office hours the Battery Park Veterinary Hospital is prepared to handle any emergency on a priority or walk-in basis. Although the Battery Park Veterinary Hospital offers 24-hour nursing care for our critical patients at our West Village Location, we are not open for emergency visits outside of our regular office hours.
It can be difficult to know when a symptom is indicative of an emergency. Something subtle like lethargy or weakness or loss of appetite could indicate internal bleeding. Generally, it is best to have a pet seen early when a symptom is present as the causative disease process may have been present for a while; remember that a dog or cat will not come to you with a complaint like a person would. No one knows your pet better than you; if you feel it is an emergency, we will see your pet immediately or on a walk-in basis; in less serious situations, we will arrange to see your pet the same day whenever possible.
Should your pet require immediate attention, please contact our West Village Veterinary Hospital (link to Contact Us page of West Village) at (212)633-7400, they are open until 8pm on weekdays, Saturdays until 4pm and Sundays until 6pm or you can contact one of the following emergency veterinary hospitals
