EMMAvet helped us over a holiday weekend when our regular vet was not available. What a caring, empathetic, and competent staff! Great care, and professional service. We would recommend them whole heartedly.

I so appreciate being able to get my make kitty in on an emergency basis. I will sleep much better tonight! The two women at the front desk were warm And professional. And while I did not meet the vet personally, she was very gentle and knowledgeable when we spoke on the phone. She obviously checked everything that needed to be checked.

Highly recommend this urgent care! They were so helpful when my dog was having a bad allergic reaction. They were so kind and caring, even right before closing on a holiday! The visit was quick and the vet was thorough and answered all my questions. Thank you so much for helping us out!

Very urgent visit. They did what they could. She called around to 5 different hospitals and finally was able to get my pup a bed at one. The effort is greatly appreciated.

they are not really an urgent care. you need to pre register and get an appointment. they don't treat small animals. only dogs and cats.

I chose this vet because their options were very affordable for me. I had to bring my dog in unexpectedly late at night. I really appreciate their extended emergency hours as well as the efficiency and kindness of the staff.

My dog was attacked by another dog and was in bad shape, so we just rushed her to the only place that would take her not even thinking about price..once everything was over we had a bill that we COULDN'T afford but we already agreed it would be up to the owner of the other dog to pay or at least help. Long story short they worked with us while we came to an agreement with the other dogs owner on a price and we really appreciate it, as well as all the help with our dog. She is slowly getting back to her normal self Thanks EMMAvet ????

The doctor wrote my family a handwritten card and had it signed by the staff after the loss of my dog. I was so moved and touched by their gesture. Everyone was very sweet and kind.

I walked into the Vet and explained everything that was wrong with my dog and what medicines she needed because she gets the same ear infection every fall and $614 later I was told she had an ear infection and I was given all the same medication I informed the Vet of at the beginning. Just be prepared to pay for unneeded procedures, tests, exams, face washes, ear washes and anything else they can try and put on your bill. This place is out to get as much money out of your pet as possible.

The doctor and staff at Emmavet were extremely responsive. They made time in their packed schedule to see my dog and provided me with a clear diagnosis and care instructions. Very careful with covid protocols too, which I appreciated. They are a caring, considerate, and competent team.

As others have posted, my cat had a semi-urgent issue and no other vets in the area would fit her in for weeks. Even the local emergency clinics told me they weren't taking walk-ins. EMMAVet staff were polite, recognized the urgency, and helped me get an appointment the day I called. Dr. Fyres treated my cat and was very thorough in explaining the issue and the treatment. I had never heard of this clinic before this happened but I will definitely go back if/when I have another urgent issue. I am so impressed with and appreciative of the way my situation was handled. Thank you EMMAvet!

They were able to take me the next day when no other vet places would. Staff is also friendly and knowledgeable. This will be my go-to for sure if I ever need an urgent care vet again.

This is the place to go when your dogs get sick but your regular vet can't squeeze them in "for 3-5 weeks." It's not the cheapest place in the world (I paid $350 for my dog to be seen for diarrhea-- he was given a fluid injection and a take-home antibiotic and probiotic)... BUT they are extremely fast, professional, and thorough. I left feeling like it was the best $350 I'd ever spent because I knew they fixed my pup up. Would recommend!

EMMAvet was there for us when we were most worried about our dog. They were wonderful and caring every step of the way, and I always felt safe dropping Louie dog off in their care.

Dr.Fires was extremely kind and responsive. Most of the front desk staff were also kind. However 1-2 people I spoke with on the phone were very diminishing and invalidating. I was made to feel pretty silly for being concerned about by cat with comments such as “oh… that’s all? That’s not that bad” and “we have an actual emergency coming In”. That said, I was also treated with kindness by other staff so I don’t want to diminish their kind words, and promptness. At the end of the night, the staff was very apologetic for the wait and was reassuring me it wouldn’t be too much longer. I was very very thankful for their help. Overall my visit was about 5 hours. I appreciated Dr.Fires explaining bloodwork and being very detail oriented.

EMMAvet was absolutely wonderful when we needed them the most. We were referred to them by our regular vet when our dog was very sick. They fit us in as soon as they opened, they were so patient with us as nervous dog parents, and they gave our anxious dog extra TLC. I hope you never need them, but if you do, I know they will take excellent care of you AND your pet!

This vet could not see my dog even though it was an emergency and I had been with them for 20 years.

They still have to control the capacity inside the hospital so I don’t know what exactly they did for my cat. But they were super detailed on collecting medical records and building file for my cat both online and at visit. The medicine doctor gave are helpful and they did checked on with me after the day of visit.

I can not speak highly enough of this urgent care facility!! My 13 year old dog was having severe bowel issues. I suspected it was a flare up of her pancreatitis, which had become more urgent as she stopped eating and drinking. This is a condition she has struggled with for most of her life, so I recognized the symptoms. I went to an urgent care Vet in Annandale, but they were over crowded, and weren’t willing to consider any of the normal diagnostics or treatments I suggested (ie: stool samples, IV fluids). After being told she needed $1,000 in xrays to “figure out what was going on” I decided to get another opinion. I AM SO GLAD I DID. Emma Vet did a full diagnostic, and came up with a much more reasonable approach. They held her for monitoring, rather than rushing to send us home. After 6 hours of fluids and a little TLC she is well on her way to recovery. I am SO grateful to have found a vet that was willing to listen to my previous experiences with flare ups, rather than just running up an expensive bill of un necessary tests.

My cat had an aural hematoma about a month ago and he wasn't eating or drinking, and was hiding. I was probably over reacting, but I was very worried about him. I must have called about 6-7 different vets to try to get him to be seen. Some vets tried giving me an appointment one month away, which clearly wasn't feasible as he wasn't eating or drinking. When I called EMMAVet, they were busy, but when I described the symptoms they realized he had to been earlier rather than later and worked around to have him seen that day. While I'm sure my cat is not a fan of this place, I sure am. He's back to his old self of sleeping, eating, and biting my wife when she doesn't give him pets, or gives him pets the wrong way.

Ferby has been to EMMAvet twice and each time the care he has received has been very thorough and very comforting for him and his family. I know that he is being seen by the very skilled and dedicated staff when we need to visit in an emergency. I am so very grateful for the care they provide after hours! Many thanks!

Just left EMMAvet for my sweet puppy with diarrhea and a possible UTI. Really thrilled with Dr. Fires and the wonderful Kathy at the front desk as well as all of the amazing techs behind the scenes that I’m certain kept Beverly’s visit relaxing and calm. Beyond everyone’s kindness and care, I felt like treatment was great and Dr. Fires really listened to what I had to say about Bev and then went into her recommendations. Covid restrictions are in place (which is great! Thank you to the EMMAvet team for prioritizing your staff’s safety!) but I don’t feel like any information or touch points were lost in the mix. Kathy explained all the meds I was sent home with very well (it is a lot of meds, props to Kathy!) and I was also emailed a copy of discharge instructions along with a receipt - love the paperless aspect. Pricing was super fair for the area and ultimately I feel like EMMAvet valued my time, my words, and my dog’s health. Not sure there’s anything else more important than that :).
