Emergency & Critical Care

Lafayette Veterinary Care Center is Here for You and Your Pets

Immediately call us at (337) 984-7611 if you are experiencing a pet emergency, and visit us at 110 Perard Street. Do not hesitate to bring your pet in if they are in need of emergency or critical care. We are equipped to handle pet emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so please bring your pet in immediately if they are experiencing an emergency.

24-Hour Service

Our clinic is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and we do not charge after hours fees. If your pet experiences an emergency or is in need of critical care at a time outside of “business hours,” please know that we are open and ready to care for your pet.

Compassionate Care

All of us at Lafayette Veterinary Care Center love pets and value their health, safety, and wellbeing. For this reason, we offer the most compassionate care we possibly can. We know that pet emergencies and injuries are emotional and frustrating, so we do our best to help pet parents through this difficult time by providing quick, friendly, streamlined service. Compassion is at the center of our practice, and we know that it is especially necessary during emergencies.

Clear Communication

A key aspect of critical and emergency pet care is communication with the pet owner. Emergency care can be costly and will often need to be administered immediately. For this reason, we establish clear lines of communication between the veterinary staff and pet parents. This way, pet parents are able to stay in the loop about their pet’s health, the type of treatment recommended, and the cost of that treatment.

Expert Staff

While we hope to only see your pet for regular wellness check-ins, our staff is highly experienced in emergency and critical animal care, and our facility is well equipped to deal with emergencies. Our expert staff is highly qualified so you can rest assured that your pet will be receiving phenomenal care.


AAHA Accreditation

Our hospital is accredited through the American Animal Hospital Association. This means that we provide top of the line care and service to pets and their owners. You can rest assured that the care you receive, whether it be regular veterinary care, like parasite prevention, or specialty care, like surgery, will be of the highest quality available. Our AAHA accreditation proves our dedication to quality veterinary service, and we are proud to be accredited through this organization.
