Vet Care When You Need it Most: Emergency & ICU Services

Emergencies can happen at any time. That’s why we offer emergency and ICU services for prompt and effective care when your pet needs it most.

Ferstl Veterinary Hospital is committed to providing your pet the highest level of care, whether they need emergency treatment or a routine exam.

We take walk-ins on a daily basis for emergencies. Your pet doesn’t have to be a current patient at our practice to be seen for an emergency. Depending on the level of urgency, pets will be seen in between our already scheduled appointments, as we see scheduled appointments first, and true emergencies will be triaged.

Whether your pet has been in an accident, is experiencing respiratory distress, or needs urgent medical attention, our experienced veterinarians and support staff are here to provide the care they need.


Our ICU is equipped with advanced technology and equipment to provide critical care for pets with life-threatening conditions. Our team is experienced in managing a range of critical conditions, from infections to trauma and organ failure. We can provide oxygen therapy, incubation therapy, and monitoring.

To provide the best care for your pet, we offer diagnostic services, including blood tests, radiology, CT, and ultrasound. These services allow us to quickly and accurately diagnose your pet’s condition and develop an appropriate treatment plan.

In some cases, emergency surgery may be required. Our surgical team is experienced in emergency procedures, including trauma surgery, gastrointestinal surgery, and more.

Our team will work closely with you to make sure you understand your pet’s condition and treatment options, and we’ll keep you informed throughout your pet’s stay in our hospital or ICU.

Call us at (989) 871-3521 if your pet needs emergency care (it’s helpful to our doctors and staff to know when an emergency patient is on the way) or simply walk in.
