Expert Care for Pet Emergencies

Whether you need a routine wellness appointment or have an after-hours emergency, Prospect Ridge Veterinary Hospital in West Orange, New Jersey, can help. We ask you schedule an appointment, as walk-ins are discouraged. Pet emergencies are accommodated at any time. You can also easily obtain animal medicine for your pet through our online pharmacy or research your pet's condition through our online library, which is rich with medical information.


Appointments

Appointments should be made in advance and walk-ins may be accommodated if our schedule allows it. If you are a new client, you can fill out the registration form in advance and bring it with you, along with your pet's previous records and vaccine history, to your first appointment.

Emergencies

If you have an emergency during business hours, we will triage your pet so they can be seen in the order of the most serious. If an emergency occurs after business hours, call Animal Emergency & Referral Assistance at (973) 788-0500. If you think your pet has ingested a poisonous substance, an Animal Poison Control Center is the best resource. Call (888) 426-4435 for round-the-clock care. A $60 consultation fee may be applied to your credit card.
