PETS Referral Center
About: “PETS was originally founded many years ago by a group of local general practice veterinarians to reduce the burden of after hours emergency calls and improve the quality of this care. Over the years PETS has continued this tradition of serving the local veterinary community by providing high quality emergency care. PETS has evolved to support specialty services including Internal Medicine, Oncology, Surgery, Ophthalmology, Emergency, and Hospice and Palliative Care. Our central location on University Avenue in Berkeley provides rapid freeway access from surrounding areas. We are available 24hrs/day, 365 days a year including all holidays. No appointment is necessary for emergency care, though we do ask that you call in advance if possible. We work closely with veterinarians in general practice with the shared goal of providing your pet with the best possible care.”
