The Veterinary Emergency Center is the only veterinary clinic west of Bradenton designed specifically for the emergency and intensive care of pets. This modern facility allows us to provide our pets with high quality care, from inpatient to outpatient care, as well as a variety of surgical procedures. We are also equipped for cases requiring surgery, such as heart attacks, strokes, heart failure and other serious medical emergencies.
If you are a current clinic customer, please know that we value your business and hope to continue to provide high quality care for your dog or dog, cat or other pet. If you ever need immediate intensive care for your pet, there are several clinics in Bradenton that provide emergency medical services around the clock. Our clinic services are not limited to pet owners, but we also benefit from the wildlife community and cats. We are the only clinic of this kind in the state of Florida and one of only a few in Florida.
We are open during normal business hours, but we will not be penalized if you cancel an appointment due to illness or possible stress. If your pet is doing well and a wellness appointment has been arranged, please note that we will be happy to postpone your appointment. That is why we have always been open and will continue to fulfil all appointments. Please contact us at clinic @ humanesocietymanatee.com or call us via our toll-free hotline 1-888-567-4357 if you are not well or if you have a pet that needs medical emergency treatment or for any other reason by calling us.
To keep our pets and employees safe and healthy, we offer our customers services such as the collection of supplies and medicines. We benefit from this revenue as we provide more services for our animals here in Manatee County. Our clients at the clinic are grateful to us for providing this kind of assistance to the needy, as all our income and expenses go back into caring for their pets.
Since the opening in September 2015 we have developed into a full service veterinary clinic. Our clinic customers help us to care for animals in need and save lives, four paws at a time. Bradenton Veterinary Emergency is committed to meeting the needs of every pet in veterinary emergencies with unprecedented compassion and complete care. The Animal ER is designed to complement the services of family veterinarians by providing diagnoses and treatments for patients who suddenly become ill or injured.
We have also expanded our customer service team and are now open seven days a week to better serve our community.
This expansion of services has been facilitated by the purchase of blood serum analysis equipment that allows our staff to perform thoroughbred work on site. This expansion of the clinic's offering also includes the expansion of staff, including a new veterinary assistant and a full-time veterinary technician (VMT). Veterinary nurse Jessica joined Banfield in August 2018 and has more than 20 years of veterinary experience in Florida and Texas.
She was born and raised in Bradenton and has two dogs, including a 2-year-old son, a 3-month-old daughter and a 1-year-old grandson. She has a cat named Figaro, has a young son named Hunter And she has three grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and one great-grandchild, all of whom she shares with her husband.
Before moving to Sarasota, Dr. Eskew worked for more than 30 years in a private practice in Bradenton, first as a veterinarian and then as a resident veterinarian at Bradford Veterinary Medical Center.
I # ve had a passion for animals since I was a little girl, and since I moved to Florida in 1999, I started working at a local shelter where I found my calling in life: working with animals. I have practiced in Bradenton and Sarasota for over 30 years before moving to Florida two years ago.
The clinic is open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 4 p.m., and the expansion of our offering has continued, including the addition of a full-time veterinary technician and an additional clinic in Sarasota. The veterinarian will call to discuss the results of the diagnostic and physical exam while you wait comfortably in the car. After completing the initial physical and diagnostic tests, the veterinarian will recommend further tests - referring to the initial results to avoid further complications. Your veterinarian may call in advance or a veterinarian will be called in to talk to you and discuss the recent history of your pet.
It is very likely that your most trusted family member or friend can point you in the right direction. If an immediate source is not available, check social media for your pet's health status and medical history.
If you observe any of the symptoms listed above, your veterinarian should perform a thorough physical exam to assess the overall condition of your pet. If you have already seen signs of worming such as diarrhea, vomiting, fever or other symptoms, ask your pets for help with needs, such as grooming or deworming. After observing all these factors, you should take the animal to your veterinarian for a comprehensive medical examination.
