Wisconsin’s Critical Care Specialists

WVRC’s Emergency Facilities Meet or Exceed all Standards Recommended by the Veterinary Emergency & Critical Care Society (VECCS)

WVRC maintains three fully-staffed emergency, trauma, and critical care facilities (Waukesha, Grafton, and Racine) that accept both walk-in and referral emergencies. We specialize in emergency medical and surgical care of small animals, especially patients requiring more intensive and long-term critical care management. But don’t take our word for it; listen to what our clients say.
