About AVSG After Hours

ASVG After Hours is a unique collaboration between Veterinary Surgical Specialists and Advanced Veterinary Internal Medicine. It was created to meet the needs of our patients after hours (when your primary care veterinarian is closed), but we are open and welcome emergencies 24-hours a day.

Led by surgical specialist Diane Craig, DVM, DACVS and internist Cynthia Duesberg, DVM, DACVIM, our team of emergency doctors and technicians have been selected for their top-notch credentials and great compassion—qualities that have made us one of the most trusted providers of emergency veterinary care in the region.

And, as part of the AVSG family, we have direct access to veterinary specialists in dentistry, dermatology, internal medicine, oncology, and surgery if needed.
