Veterinary Emergency Group, a 24/7 emergency pet care facility, opened April 11 in Cedar Park.

Formed in 2014, Veterinary Emergency Group, or VEG, is a company with a sole purpose of serving people and their pets at the highest time of need, according to an April 3 news release. VEG has over 70 hospitals across the U.S.

VEG hospitals operate 24/7, even on holidays, and offer a wide range of services, including ultrasounds; X-rays; surgery; diagnostics and testing; and emergency care for ailments such as seizures, vomiting and wounds, according to the release and the VEG website.

A variety of animals can receive treatment at VEG hospitals, including cats, dogs, birds, snakes, turtles, ferrets, hedgehogs, sugar gliders and more. Additionally, VEG hospitals allow pet parents to stay by their pets' sides through all forms of treatment, including surgery and overnight hospitalization, according to the release.

The new Cedar Park location is VEG’s 10th hospital in Texas and is led by Medical Director Dr. Sam McDonald. VEG Cedar Park will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 11 at 3 p.m. to celebrate the hospital’s opening, the release states.

“When a pet parent walks into VEG Cedar Park, they will immediately feel they have finally found a place that will provide their family and pet the best emergency veterinary experience that exists,” VEG founder and CEO Dr. David Bessler said in the release.
