There’s a new veterinary resource available for 24-hour emergency care. The Veterinary Medical Center (VMC) at Dublin is affiliated with The Ohio State University and the College of Veterinary Medicine. Located at 5020 Bradenton Avenue in Dublin, the new OSU satellite office offers the same quality care that you would expect to receive at the main Veterinary Medical Center on the Ohio State campus–only closer to home!

We’ve already tried out the VMC at Dublin for a kitty with pancreatitis and a kitty with a urinary blockage. Both were sent to the Dublin office by our vet, Dr. Kim West of Health and Harmony Animal Hospital in Grandview. Both kitties received excellent care while they were there.

The VMC at Dublin offers outpatient imaging services, as well as outpatient ultrasounds. Our kitty with pancreatitis had an ultrasound done that helped us discover the cause of her problems.

For more information on the VMC at Dublin, go HERE.

While you do not need an appointment for emergencies, it is always a good idea to call ahead and let them know you are on your way. You can call the VMC at Dublin at 614-889-8070.
