From Our Website

As Vermont's only specialty and 24/7 emergency animal hospital, Burlington Emergency & Veterinary Specialists (BEVS) provides a level of care you simply won't find anyplace else in the state. From expert emergency and critical care 24 hours a day to advanced veterinary specialty and referral services-including surgery, internal medicine, oncology, rehabilitation, radioiodine therapy, and acupuncture-BEVS animal hospital is a trusted partner not only to you and your pet, but also to the region's primary care veterinarians.

Your primary care veterinarian is qualified to handle many of your pet's health issues. Sometimes, however, a specialist's expertise is needed. Just as your primary care doctor sometimes refers you to a specialist, your family veterinarian may refer your pet to an internist, a board-certified veterinary specialist in internal medicine, to help diagnose or treat especially complex or chronic medical problems. A veterinary internist is a veterinarian who's undergone advanced training in how your pet's internal body systems function, and in diagnosing and treating the most serious diseases that affect these systems.

Just like humans, pets sometimes need blood or blood products. That's why our commitment to the best care possible includes BEVS' Blood Donor Program, giving our staff immediate access to critical blood resources and products when needed. Our highly experienced team, led by Bryan Harnett, DVM, DACVIM and Jen Hall, CVT, VTS (SAIM) are committed to ensuring availability of blood products to provide the critical care a pet may need due to illness or serious injury. Your pet's contribution can help make sure that we always have enough on hand.

If your cat is showing signs of hyperthyroidism, you'll be glad to know that Burlington Emergency and Veterinary Specialists offers a safe, effective treatment to help restore your cat's good health. It's called radioiodine therapy, and it's considered the best choice today for curing hyperthyroidism.

When it comes to BEVS' commitment to the community we serve, you could say that we put our money-andour time and energy-where our mouth is. We get involved, volunteering in ways big and small to make this region better for pets and the people who love them. At BEVS, we've also created a nonprofit foundation through which we raise money and, in turn, make grants that advance pet health. If you would like to support the BEVS Foundation, know that your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

Is your dog comfortable being handled by strangers and able to stay calm for a period of time? Does your dog take any medications? Medications besides preventatives disqualify your pet from participating in our blood donor program. Canine blood donor participants should plan for a one-year commitment in the BEVS Blood Bank Program. Are you willing to commit to four scheduled visits a year to the BEVS Blood Bank Program for your dog to provide donations? Thank you for completing our questionnaire.

A canine blood donor is a dog that has been screened and approved to give blood to be used as a life saving measure for another animal in the event of an emergency. At BEVS, we carefully store the blood until it is needed for patients in crisis, such as anemia and blood loss due to trauma. We use a needle just a little bigger than the one used to draw blood for regular screenings at your primary care veterinarian. Most dogs tolerate this quite well, and we strive to make each dog feel as comfortable as possible with treats and lots of love.
