VCA Shoreline Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Appointments are required for specialty care visits, but emergency cases are accepted at any time. If your general practitioner veterinarian has referred your pet to us, the pet is diagnosed and treated, then sent back to your regular veterinarian for any follow up care. Our specialists will work in concert with your regular veterinarian to provide seamless care for your pet. Please note, new patients should arrive 20 to 30 minutes prior to their appointment time so that their medical chart can be prepared.
