Animal Emergency Center of Quad Cities provides after-hours emergency care and monitoring of critically ill patients for many area veterinary clinics and hospitals. If you have a veterinary emergency, call your family veterinarian first. They may refer you to our clinic, which is staffed by veterinarians and technicians skilled in emergency care. We will notify your own veterinarian of your pet's visit on the next business day.

On occasion, multiple emergencies may be presented at the same time. The staff will assess the severity of each patient's symptoms. Those with the most critical conditions will be examined first. All patients will be seen as soon as possible, but your patience is appreciated if your pet must wait.

All hospitalized patients must be discharged from our facility before our closing time of 8:00 a.m. We suggest you plan to arrive between 7:00 - 7:30 a.m. the day of discharge. Please bring a leash or carrier for your pet.

In cases that need further hospital care, you can transfer your pet to your family veterinarian after discharge. Our staff will fax all case records to your own veterinarian so they can continue the care your pet needs. Pets going home will receive written instructions for follow-up care and a copy of the records will also be sent to your daytime vet.

If you would like more information about these Funds or to determine if your pet would qualify for financial assistance please ask our staff when you visit Animal Emergency Center of Quad Cities

The Foundation was established by Norma Jewell in 2003 in honor of Bear. With his amazing, loyal and giving spirit, I felt Bear deserved special recognition for his years of dedication and service. For all the lives Bear played a part in saving, this Foundation will continue the tradition and assist with helping save more.

"I took my 9 year old GSD in, and they took such wonderful care of us. The staff was amazing and so were the docs. They communicated with my regular vet, and soon we found her problem. The doctor was not only knowledgeable but very personable as well. Thank you so much... The vet techs were so helpful and concerned." P. Arducci

An emergency fee of $100.00 which covers the initial exam will be charged to all clients. This fee is slightly higher after midnight and on Holidays. To avoid misunderstanding, the emergency fee and form of payment will be discussed prior to patient admission.

After the initial examination, the doctor on duty will give an estimate of further charges for treatment, hospitalization, or surgery. In some cases, an accurate estimate of total charges will be delayed until a full case evaluation is made. If your pet's condition changes after being admitted, we will attempt to contact you about further treatment or estimate revision. If a critical situation arises and you cannot be reached, we will provide the necessary care. Fees are due at the time services are rendered; a deposit will requested with the balance due upon discharge.

We accept cash, check and major credit cards. We also have a payment option entitled "Care Credit" which allows you to apply for credit to our facility and enroll in potentially interest free payment plans.
