In Case Of Pet Emergency in Worcester, Auburn, Holden, Shrewsbury and Surrounding Massachusetts Towns.

 
For your convenience, Home Care Veterinary Services has provided the following links in case of emergency:
If you are faced with a life threatening emergency for your pet, please take your pet to the nearest clinic that is open. We have listed a number of emergency clinics below.

There are other clinics, sometimes VCA hospitals, for example, in Northborough or Worcester that may have late evening and Sunday hours. Banfield in Millbury has Sunday hours but doesn't typically take life-threatening emergencies.

For other non-life threatening medical problems your pet may have, call us and we'll make every effort to respond. We may even be able to help you assess whether the problem is truly of an emergency nature. If we are unable to respond, please call one of the emergency clinics that are open outside of our normal business hours or during vacation periods.
