Are There 24 Hour Vets in New Orleans?

Just like people, pets may become ill at any time of the day or night. Unlike hospitals for people that have 24-hour emergency rooms, many pet hospitals are open only during business hours. For pet owners in the New Orleans area, there is good news. Metairie Small Animal Hospital provides emergency animal care every day of the year, 24 hours a day. If you pet needs emergency service, the professional veterinarians of Metairie Small Animal Hospital are there at the time of need with 24 hour vet service.

Metairie Small Animal Hospital offers not only 24-hour emergency care but specialized services including:

• House calls
• Surgical procedures
• Pick-up and delivery of animals for established customers
• Boarding
• Grooming
• Wellness examinations and care
• ICU care
• Exotic pet care

Our in-house lab allows quick turn-around so that diagnosis and treatment can start as soon as possible. Blood chemistry, urine analysis, ultrasound, endoscopy and radiography are just a few of the diagnostic services we offer. We also use trusted independent labs if more detailed testing is needed.

Our 14 professional veterinarians and more than 70 support staff love animals and treat you pets as if they were their own. We also have veterinarians who specialize in several aspects of animal care including cardiology, oncology, laser therapy for pain relief, animal husbandry and dentistry. Our exotic animal services include care and diagnostics for snakes, iguanas, birds, small pets like guinea pigs and hamsters and other unusual pets.

Metairie Small Animal Hospital was founded in 1946 and moved to 101 Metairie Road in 1952, which has been the location of the primary hospital ever since. We also operate three neighborhood outpatient clinics throughout the city and nearby communities to better serve our customers. Outpatient clinics are in Kenner, Lakeview and West Esplanade.
