ER Clinics

(Poison Control info is at the bottom of this page.)

If you feel your pet is having an emergency and our clinic is closed, there are very good emergency veterinary hospitals in our area. Do not waste valuable time. The following is a list of preferred emergency hospitals in our area: 

Veterinary Emergency, Surgery and Specialty Hospital of Palm Beach Gardens
4019 Hood Road
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida 33410
(561) 625-9995
THIS HOSPITAL HAS SPECIALISTS AND ER VETERINARIANS. There are 2 internists (Dr Bueschler and Dr Cameron), 2 wonderful surgeons (Dr Vianna and Dr Flynn), a neurologist (Dr Peters) and a critical care specialist (Dr Lippo) in addition to their ER docs, and a wonderful dermatologist, Dr Ursula.  VSH opened in 2011.    VHS is her preferred emergency hospital for the pets of Jupiter and Tequesta. Perhaps the biggest reason Dr Sutton chooses this as her preferred ER clinic is that they have Dr Lippo, a board-certified critical care specialist.  It is located on Hood Road between Military Trail and 1A/811.  It is south of Donald Ross and east of Military Trail.  It on the corner of 1A/811 and Hood Road.

    Dr. Joi Sutton is an incredible vet! She was willing to change her weekend around and help me and my 20 year old cat. I highly recommend meeting her in person. She is smart and caring!

    Michelle C​​

    Dr. Joi is fantastic we have been with her for about six years now and she's the best vet I have ever had, I've had dogs all my life and so I've seen my share of vets and she's the tops, She even made a house call in an emergency and nobody does that anymore, I would highly recommend her to anybody that has a cat or a dog or any other small animal that she might take care of.

    I love Tequesta Veterinary Clinic! Joi and the entire staff are so friendly and helpful. I'm forever grateful that I found them as a second opinion several years ago when another vet was ready to give up and put my dog to sleep at only 2 years old! Joi took the common sense approach, started from the beginning, and went over the basics that the other vet missed. She literally saved our dog's life and saved us thousands of dollars in unnecessary testing too. It's hard to find a good vet, and I recommend Tequesta Veterinary Clinic to everyone who asks!

    Michelle B​​

    Our cat became ill and we were in a panic about what was happening. The staff at Tequesta Veterinary Clinic was extremely helpful, kind, gentle, and knowledgeable. Dr. Joi is professional, a nonalarmist, and very experienced. Both our cat and our family were well respected and tended to, which isn’t an easy task. We’ve known this clinic for years and years as Dr. Joi also helped my parents and their dog over the years. I highly recommended her and her work.

    My old man, a 12-year-old beagle named "Juice", was treated like a king at this vet. I just moved from Pittsburgh and Juice really needed some dental work. I was putting it off until June when I returned to Pittsburgh but then I found this vet a half-mile down the road. Dr. Joi and her whole staff are amazing. They made me feel very comfortable taking my dog here for procedures and routine check-ups. After Juice's procedure, Dr. Joi gave me her personal number and called me to check on him. She goes the extra mile for her patients.
