Busy, as expected on a holiday weekend, however our pet was triaged & treated appropriately & skillfully. And importantly, we were kept up to date on his progress! Thanks AAVEC, Dr. Wood & the vet technician staff!

Extremely professional and very knowledgeable. My dog broke her leg. They set up an appointment immediately to see her. Surgery was done with follow ups every two weeks. Everyone I came in contact with was attentive and never rushed me through with anything. My girl healed very nicely. I would definitely recommend. Even my own vet agrees!

Debra H.

This is our second trip to the Emergency Vet, last time with our kitty Ele when she had an asthma attack that almost killed her, this time with our pup Lilly. The front desk staff understands our fears and gets us right into a room. Both times Dr Tom Kozek treated our babies with such care and then talked to us for almost 10 minutes telling us everything & answering all of our questions. We won't go anywhere else! Thank you Annapolis Emergency Clinic.
