Emergency Medicine and Critical Care

Pets and Small Exotics

225-578-9600

We accept emergency cases at any time of the day or night; however, we ask that referring veterinarians to please call ahead to 225-578-9600 and speak with the Emergency clinician on duty prior to sending the patient. The ECC service will provide referring DVM with an estimate of costs and details about services that can be offered on an Emergency basis.  

Horses and Farm Animals

225-578-9500

The Veterinary Teaching Hospital provides emergency and critical care 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Even if LSU is officially closed for holidays or disasters like hurricanes, our hospital remains open to provide emergency care for animals. 

We accept emergency cases at any time of the day or night.  

It's always best to call before departing or on the way to the hospital if it is safe for you to do so.
