The Only Level 1 Trauma Center in NYC

Where you go first in an emergency matters.

When your pet is sick or injured, you want them in the best hands. That’s what you get when you visit a Level 1 Trauma Center. You’re ensuring your pet’s care is overseen by experienced board-certified emergency and critical care specialists with access to the technology and resources to diagnose and treat any issue your pet may have.

Everything Your Pet Needs Under One Roof

In an emergency, time is of the essence – AMC’s collaborative care means timely diagnosis and treatment.

No pet owner wants to visit the ER only to be transferred to another facility that can provide better care. That will never happen at AMC. Our 20+ in-house specialties and services–including a world-renowned Avian & Exotic Pet Medicine Service–are available to ER patients for consultation and referral, and our accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) means that your pet will always receive the highest standard of care.
