Veterinary Emergency Group Opens Revolutionary Emergency Pet Care in Santa Monica

New Pet ER in Santa Monica Provides the Highest Level of Care and Experience to Pet-Friendly Families

Veterinary Emergency Group (VEG), the world's veterinary emergency company that helps people and their pets when they need it most, is excited to announce the opening of its first hospital in the Los Angeles area at 2700 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90403 on Wednesday, June 21 at 11:30 am. This VEG location will provide families in Santa Monica and neighboring cities with the highest level of emergency care in veterinary medicine, including surgeries, ultrasounds, x-rays and more.

"When a pet parent walks into VEG Santa Monica, they will immediately feel they have finally found a place that will provide their family and pet the best emergency veterinary experience that exists," said Dr. David Bessler, VEG founder and CEO. "Upon entering VEG Santa Monica, pet parents will feel a sigh of relief and comfort, as they are greeted with a friendly smile, empathetic attitude, and luxury comforts for them, and their pet."

VEG has revolutionized veterinary emergency medicine by completely reworking the experience so it works for people and their pets. When a pet parent calls VEG, they speak immediately with a licensed veterinarian to get their medical questions answered. VEG customers don't need to wait and worry in a lobby. Instead, triage begins as soon as they walk in the door, even before filling out paperwork. Pet parents are allowed to stay with their pet through all stages of treatment, including surgery and overnight hospitalization.

VEG Santa Monica is open for pet emergencies 24/7 with no wait times, even on holidays. The hospital treats any type of pet that fits through the door, including exotics and avian patients. VEG Santa Monica has an open floor plan that allows pet parents to have freedom of movement and to see life-saving heroics up close.

VEG not only accommodates customer needs; the company gives back to the pet-loving community through VEG Cares, an initiative benefiting underserved pets in crisis, and by supporting future emergency veterinarians by granting scholarships to D.V.M. students.
