Akron Veterinary Referral & Emergency Center
Akron Veterinary Referral & Emergency Center (AVREC), an extension of your family veterinarian, is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide the finest emergency and specialized veterinary health care services.
For situations in which your pet requires advanced medical care, AVREC provides the veterinary specialists, emergency room clinicians, diagnostic equipment and state-of-the-art facility to ensure the highest quality care for our patients.
Pet owners are referred to AVREC by their veterinarians for a specific health reason and/or a second opinion. We are also available for after hours, holiday and weekend emergencies when your veterinarian is unavailable.
AVREC is regarded by many as Northeast Ohio’s finest veterinary specialty hospital. AVREC is designed to provide advanced surgical, medical, emergency and critical care for dogs and cats. We work closely with general practice veterinarians throughout Ohio and surrounding states.
At AVREC, our board certified specialists, experienced emergency medicine doctors and trained staff work in tandem with you and your family veterinarian to provide the best care available. We act as an extension of your family veterinarian when specialized diagnostic treatments, procedures or surgeries are required. Your veterinarian may refer you to us for a specific health reason, a second opinion or an emergency situation when he or she is unavailable.
