Emergency Care and Poison Control

Here at Branchburg Animal Hospital, we are not open 24/7. Here are some local hospitals and resources that do offer 24/7 emergency care, in the case that your cat or dog needs immediate care after hours.

Animerge is located on Route 206 in Raritan and offers around the clock emergency care. (908)707-9077

We also recommend:

Garden State Veterinary Specialists 732-922-0011

NorthStarVets 609-259-8300

ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center is a resource that can be used if your dog or cat has eaten something potentially hazardous. Call them at (888) 426-4435 24/7 for information.
