AEH DeLand Construction Updates

Our New Animal Emergency Hospital in DeLand is Under Construction

Animal Emergency Hospital Volusia’s sister location in DeLand, Florida is currently under construction! The ultra-modern, 7,500 sq. ft. facility is scheduled to open October 2021.

Initially, pet parents will be able to bring in their pets on a walk-in basis, nights, weekends, and holidays, moving to 24/7 as the hospital grows. Services will include emergency and critical care, advanced diagnostics including digital X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and fluoroscopy, as well as an onsite intensive care unit (ICU), laboratory, and digital cytology services. Select specialty services by board-certified veterinary specialists will also be available.

The inspiration to create a second hospital was fueled by requests from the region’s primary care veterinarians who need a more convenient and reliable resource for their patients in need of emergency services.
