Veterinary Emergency Clinic
The qualified and caring staff at the Veterinary Emergency Clinic are here to help you and your pet in an emergency situation. It is reassuring to know that there is a dedicated group of professionals who are available to provide expert care during what may be a very emotional and difficult time.
The Veterinary Emergency Clinic was founded in 1975 by a group of 25 local veterinarians. The hospital was established as a Limited Liability Corporation, with each veterinarian acting as a stock owner. Currently, there are approximately 167 area veterinarians who are participating owners in the Veterinary Emergency Clinic.
The original Veterinary Emergency Clinic building, located in Winter Park , was enlarged and remodeled several times until 2001 when the VEC expanded into two custom built hospitals located in Orlando and Casselberry. By 2004 a third Veterinary Emergency Clinic location was opened in Leesburg and in 2015 VEC opened a new location in Waterford Lakes.
