Emergency Care

Emergency services are available 24/7 for current clients ONLY. 

Hoof & Hound will be closed from July 2nd – July 8th and Dr. Masur will be unavailable during this time period. Please look below for alternative care options.


If you are experiencing an animal health emergency and you are a CURRENT client, please call, do not text:


Some “what if”s:

  • Unsure if you’re experiencing an emergency or not? Please call. I can talk you through it.
  • Calling, but getting my voicemail? Leave a message with your name and which animal is a affected and what is happening. 
  • Not a current client? You will not receive a return call until normal business hours. Emergency services are available 24/7 for current clients only. 

The biggest “what if”:

What if Dr. Masur is unavailable and you have an emergency?

UPDATE with respect to COVID-19:

Most wellness or elective farm calls have been postponed indefinitely. Hours are limited due to child care obstacles, and for state-mandated conservation of equipment. This strategy is to ensure that there is some availability and equipment for unforeseen emergencies or sick calls.

In the event that this occurs, I recommend several alternative options for you to seek care for your animals. This depends on which animals are in trouble and where you are located.

For small animal emergencies state-wide:

  • Garden State Veterinary Specialists
  • Open 24/7
  • 732-922-0011
  • 1 Pine Street in Tinton Falls

For livestock emergencies in Ocean County, surrounding areas:

  • Denning’s Veterinary Service
  • Hours vary, service is house call/farm call oriented
  • 609-489-1416

For livestock emergencies in Somerset County, surrounding areas:

  • Acorn Farmvets
  • Service is house call/farm call oriented
  • 908-625-6300

For livestock emergencies statewide that require hospitalization:

  • New Bolton Center
  • Haul-in hospital with intensive care capabilities for livestock species
  • 610-444-5800
  • 382 West Street Road, Kennett Square, PA

Regardless of which facility you may choose, ALWAYS call a facility ahead of your arrival. In life or death situations, it is crucial that the triage team has the opportunity to prepare for an incoming emergency.
