BluePearl Specialty and Emergency Pet Hospitals

BluePearl is a national provider of emergency and specialty veterinary services such as cardiology, neurology and oncology. BluePearl has 76 hospitals in 24 states across the country that combine advanced veterinary medicine with compassion and respect for patients and their families. BluePearl’s clinicians use innovative procedures, high-tech equipment and the latest treatment methods to provide remarkable care for pets.

Our Emergency Care

Pet emergencies often happen at inconvenient times. Our skilled emergency veterinarians and support teams treat and stabilize pets on weekends and holidays, 24 hours per day, 365 days a year. When your family veterinarian’s office is closed, or a pet suddenly becomes ill or injured, we’re ready to help.

Our Specialties & Services

Family veterinarians regularly refer their patients to BluePearl because of our advanced training. Our veterinarians specialize in avian and exotic animals, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, diagnostic imaging, emergency medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, rehabilitation and surgery.

BluePearl Science

To provide the highest standard of patient care and contribute advanced knowledge to the veterinary community, BluePearl Science, a division of BluePearl, coordinates exploratory clinical studies. These clinical studies investigate the efficacy of new drugs, treatments and protocols intended to improve pet health. This offers local veterinarians and their patient’s access to treatments that are not yet commercially available. Findings of BluePearl Science studies have been published in renowned academic journals, including the Journal of Veterinary Surgery.

Our Social Responsibility

Remarkable care is our mission, but we firmly believe the foundation of veterinary medicine is compassion. In 1999, BluePearl’s co-founder, Dr. Neil Shaw, grew BluePearl as both a company and corporate citizen in creating Frankie’s Friends—a charity helping save pets’ lives through grants that assist with emergency or specialty care for pets whose families cannot afford the full cost of treatment.

Mars Petcare

In 2015, BluePearl joined the Mars family, an iconic, family-owned organization that has demonstrated a significant commitment to helping pets. Mars Petcare is the world’s leading pet nutrition and health care provider, and joining the family gave BluePearl new, unprecedented opportunities for development and support.
