Notes from the ER

An intimate look inside the emergency room at the Schwarzman Animal Medical Center (AMC) — the busiest veterinary ER in the U.S. and the only Level 1 Veterinary Trauma Center in the New York City area.


Have you ever wondered what happens when a cat falls out of a window in Manhattan? Or when a dog gets into a fight with a porcupine in rural Massachusetts? They are brought to the Stephen & Christine Schwarzman Animal Medical Center (AMC) in New York City, the premier veterinary emergency room in the tri-state area and the busiest in the country. These cases and more are showcased in AMC’s Notes from the ER video – an exclusive and intimate day-in-the-life of seasoned emergency veterinarian, Dr. Carly Fox.

As any pet owner knows, where you go first for care matters, and AMC is uniquely equipped to treat any dog, cat, bird, or exotic pet that walks through its doors, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
