Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.

My sister and I have been going to this animal hospital for 7 years now! We brought our now senior dog to this vet when she was about 1 year old and they couldn't have been anymore amazing then they are now. When our dog got Lyme disease it was very scary and we had no clue what to do and where to bring her. My sister was looking for a vet that was close by and closed a bit later due to her working hours and that's when we found fox chapel. Our dogs limbs were swollen and we could barely pick her up without letting out loud cries of pain. Once we brought her in, Dr. Armie was so helpful and very reassuring about everything. This was a long time ago but the doctors helped us so much in setting up our wellness plans and doing their best in explaining everything to us down to the T! I am forever grateful because they truly helped my sister and I when we had no clue what to do since minnie was our first dog at the time. We eventually got a cat a few years after getting our dog, and we also take her here too! They always answer our questions and any concerns we have for our animals and always give us suggestions and recommendations.

A friend recommended Fox Chapel and I'm SO glad they did! Everyone on staff is friendly, caring, and knowledgable. Both Dr. Armie and Dr. Cris saw my senior dog and made him feel very comfortable during visits for his exam, procedure, and follow-up. I really can't say enough good things about this team!

Recently my four year old cat collapsed and was in severe pain and unable to walk. My cat had developed a Fetal Aortic Thromboembolism, a clot in her rear leg.
As soon as we arrived we were escorted to an examination room. Dr. Chris and Dr. Armie were both on site at the time. They were so thorough and wonderful to us and our cat. They quickly alleviated her pain, and began her treatment. Two days later we were able to bring her home.
The whole staff is wonderful there. We were allowed to visit her and spend time with her in the back for as long as we wanted. They were very quick to notify us by phone of her condition and any changes.
If you are in need of any emergency care or veterinarian care please don't hesitate to go to this hospital. The doctors there go above and beyond and are absolutely wonderful!
Thank you to Dr. Chris and Dr. Armie and all of the staff at Fox Chapel Animal Hospital!

Customer Testimonials

I called Fox Chapel on a Sunday trying to find a vet locally that offered urgent appointments. I was worried about having to spend a ridiculous amount of money but knew my dog needed to be seen. They offered me an appointment within 45 minutes, saying I may need to wait but they would fit me in. Not only was there no wait, but the staff and vet were all amazing! The cost of the visit was extremely reasonable, for once I did not feel like someone was trying to add on all these extra unneeded items to raise the cost of care. The vet even brought up some things that our current vet has not regarding her known heart murmur. For these reasons I am considering changing my vet to them now! Many thanks for the great care!!


Easily one of the best vet experiences I've had. Usually a vet's office gives off a similar vibe to a doctor's office and it isn't very comfortable. This place has a lot of personality and is very warm and welcoming. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful and the vet was one of the sweetest animal lovers I've met. Definitely recommended.


Everyone on staff are friendly and kind and they really do care. Dr. Armie Escano I would recommend her very highly she kind to cat shadow she answers all of my questions concerning the surgery every step of the way ; I like that about a doctor. They even call me to find out how she was doing. I thought that was very nice of them.

Select your new dog with your lifestyle and living situation in mind. In addition to your new family member's personality, consider its temperament, size, and coat as well. Some breeds have traits that may be objectionable in certain circumstances, such as hyper excitability or a tendency to bark. Your veterinarian is a valuable resource and should be consulted before you acquire a pet of any kind. There are two types of dogs--purebred and mixed breed. The 124 recognized breeds are grouped into seven categories: hound, working, terrier, toy, sporting, non-sporting, and herding.


Bloat and gastric torsion is a serious condition and your pet should be rushed to the emergency room if this occurs. Certain breeds of dogs with deep chests and narrow waists, such as hounds, bouvier des Flandres, or doberman pinschers are more susceptible to a syndrome of gastric torsion and bloat. Gastric Dilation Volvulus (GDV) is a life threatening, acute condition that requires immediate medical attention. Certain breeds are more prone to this condition: boxers, great Danes, standard poodles, saint bernards, Irish setters, dobermans, weimaraners and gordon setters.


Birds have recently become very popular as pets. And for good reason. They have many positive attributes, but very few negative characteristics. Many people who meet a good bird for the first time are amazed at how friendly and affectionate birds can be. They offer a great deal of companionship and will return all of the love you can give. More and more people are discovering that caged birds bring color, song or vocalization, and amusement into their lives. Many birds form strong attachments to people and make excellent companions.


A cat enclosure offers the perfect way for your favorite feline to enjoy a little outdoor time without being subjected to the dangers of the real world. Before you make the decision about adding an enclosure to your property, consider these facts. Diabetes in cats, also known as feline diabetes mellitus, is an increasingly common disease affecting 1 out of every 400 cats. Obesity is the leading risk factor for diabetes. Cat declawing is possibly one of the most controversial of all animal surgeries.


This let's us record our pet and owners into our management software so that we can effectively and efficiently provide the service you deserve! Are you planning on adding a pet to your family this year? These tips will help you prepare for the arrival of your furry, feathered, or finned friend.
