24/7 Emergency Vet Care in Southern California

Crossroads Animal Emergency is a healthcare emergency animal hospital that serves the Southern California region with two convenient locations in Norwalk and Huntington Beach. From Los Angeles to Long Beach and Orange County, we’re the emergency animal healthcare providers that people trust when their pets have a veterinary emergency.

We are open all night, every night, when other veterinary offices are closed and provide 24-hour emergency veterinary care on weekends and holidays.

We offer a comprehensive set of emergency veterinary services for dogs and cats. We receive referrals from over 80 area veterinary hospitals because we’ve built our reputation on quality care.

Pet veterinary emergencies can come in many forms, and the expert veterinarians and staff at Crossroads Animal Emergency are equipped to treat a range of conditions, including:

  • Ingestion of toxic household chemicals like antifreeze, pesticides, and foods and plants poisonous to pets
  • Trauma from interactions with vehicles or falls
  • Seizures
  • Broken bones
  • Bite wounds from other animals
  • Allergic reactions
  • Complications from pregnancy or birth of puppies/kittens

Pet healthcare emergencies can be very stressful for everyone concerned. Pet owners are naturally quite worried when these situations arise, and it can be difficult to know where to turn to for help. Crossroads Animal Emergency is the trusted pet veterinary emergency clinic for Los Angeles and communities in Orange County, and is staffed by caring, knowledgeable veterinary professionals with decades of experience.

What Can You Expect from the Care at Crossroads?

We have a system to ensure our animal patients are treated with the care and compassion they deserve. Care starts the minute animals come in, when staff will check-in the patient.

Pets are evaluated and prioritized based on the emergency and the animal’s condition when it comes through the door. Life-saving measures can begin right away to help stabilize a patient’s condition and alleviate suffering.

When the animal is stabilized, a thorough examination is performed by the doctor and recommendations for any necessary tests discussed between veterinarian and pet owner. Because time is critical in emergencies, we have an in-house laboratory and the latest digital X-ray so our veterinarian doctors can quickly and accurately diagnose your pet’s condition.

Once a diagnosis is reached, the veterinarian will provide you with a treatment plan.

If your pet requires a fairly quick, non-surgical procedure, we can perform the necessary treatment. Once your pet begins to recover, you may be able to continue home care. Our staff will instruct you how to do this.

If a pet patient needs more extensive treatment, our staff will begin immediately while you wait in the comfort of our lobby. We believe in caring for you as well as your precious pets, and provide free wireless, snacks and Netflix entertainment to ease the waiting. Our veterinary doctors and staff will keep pet owners informed with regular updates.

Pets undergoing certain treatments or surgery may be required to stay overnight for observation and care. Our staff excels at very personalized attention for our patients until they can be released back to the owners to finish their healing at home.

Important Note

Based on the severity of your pet's condition, the medical team may decide to take your pet immediately to the treatment area.

If other pets are in the clinic, all cases will be stabilized and prioritized based on the nature of the emergencies. The most critically-ill patients will be seen first. Please be supportive of other pet owners and their pets. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
