Meet our Family!
Rivertown Veterinary Emergency is based on a unique concept of cooperation with local veterinarians in the Chattahoochee Valley region. Our vision is one of open communication with our colleagues, and our promise is to provide emergency veterinary services when other clinics are closed. We do not offer standard preventive care (vaccines, wellness exams, heartworm/flea preventatives, spay/neuter services). Our purpose is to provide after hours acute care, and to refer our patients back to their regular daytime veterinarians once the emergency is managed. We believe that this vision will strengthen Columbus as a community, and allow us to work together in providing a better standard of care for our furry family members.
