Veterinary Emergency Group Pikesville

Veterinary Emergency Group Pikesville helps people and pets when they need it most 24/7.  We never defer.  We only do emergency, and we do it best. 

Veterinary Emergency Group Pikesville takes a radically different approach to emergency and urgent veterinary care. We keep everything completely transparent in our 70+ open-concept hospitals. Pet owners stay with their pets through all stages of treatment; no bringing your pet to “the back.” In fact, you can even participate in their care. VEG hospitals are open 24 hours a day, even on holidays, with an emergency-trained staff that’s ready to handle the unexpected. From accident wounds to vomiting to complex surgeries, you’ll see healing-focused heroics up close, as your pet receives unparalleled care.

Call anytime and speak with a doctor, or come right in for immediate triage. We never know which species will come through our doors but we’re ready, with emergency doctors who are specially trained to treat every kind of pet! Our Pikesville, MD pet emergency hospital is just northwest of Baltimore, within minutes of Catonsville, Ellicott City, Owings Mills, and Woodlawn. VEG Pikesville is located at the corner of Reisterstown Road. and Mt. Wilson Lane in Woodholme Square. If you need assistance getting your pet into the hospital, call ahead and one of our VEGgies will meet you at the door.

“We loved this open concept and the care was superior to another place we started at for a visit tonight, we left due to the wait- over 2 hours. VEG got us right in, viewed our dog and had a plan! They let us be a part of it all and the team was great!”– Jacquelynn H.

“It is hard to find the words for how grateful we are to VEG. During one of the scariest days of our lives, the staff was attentive, quick and compassionate. They kept us involved in every single step. From shaving his fur to letting us sit next to our boy and watch him snooze. They made us felt accompanied. Understood. In good hands.I wish I had had time to thank each and every one of the staff members.”-  Magaly S.
“Everyone was so helpful! We felt very taken care of and everything was explained to us clearly. Our dog Ozzie was taken care of and they fixed her right up. Highly recommend ❤️.”- Morgan R.
“Veterinary Emergency Group is without a doubt THE BEST ER Vet around. You can speak to a dr via call and even if you call 50x the staff are patient, kind & answer every single question you may have. You immediately are able to be seen & see a dr fairly quickly. The best part is that you can hold your animal, comfort them & be with them during the exam etc. The Drs. are compassionate & make your animal feel as comfortable as possible.”- Joanna K.
“I want to thank the staff of VEG for the incredible care they gave to my dog Kal in the past 24 hours. I brought Kal there at midnight in respiratory distress they saw him right away were caring and compassionate to me and my dog told me what to expect got a comfortable chair for me so I could stay there as long as I wanted. With adjustments of medications – O2 and watching Kal for over 12 hours he’s now resting comfortably at home. Emergency Care at it’s best thank you from the bottom of my heart.“- Jay M.
