Why Choose Animal Intermediate Care? 

   There are times when Animal Intermediate Care can of be of great service to you and your pet. Our goal is to compliment the care that is provided by your primary veterinarian and help get your pet the medical care it needs when acute problems occur. We always encourage, when new problems arise, to consult with your primary veterinary hospital first. If they determine that your pets medical condition needs veterinary attention but are unable to accommodate seeing you, then they may refer you to us. There will be times when referral to an emergency clinic may be more appropriate and there may be times that waiting for your veterinarians next available appointment will also be appropriate.
