Our Expertise

Our small animal emergency service sees emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We welcome both referral and walk-in veterinary emergencies of any kind. No appointment is needed for your pet to visit the emergency service – you can show up any time. If either you or your veterinarian would like to discuss your pet’s care with the veterinary emergency team prior to coming in, please call our emergency 225-578-9600. Even if LSU is officially closed for holidays or disasters like hurricanes, our hospital remains open to provide emergency care for animals.
