About AmbuVet

Locally Owned and Operated since 2001


AmbuVet® is the only pet emergency transport service in New York City that operates 24/7 by New York State certified Veterinary Technicians.

Don Montes, a Licensed Veterinary Technician and owner of AmbuVet Pet Ambulance, assists in various animal emergencies every day. Animals hit by cars, building collapses, fires and other medical emergencies rely on Don's trustworthy service to save pet lives. They also offer non- medical transports of animals "door to door" when an owner/guardian needs assistance for regular care.

Our goal, in partnership with your pets veterinarian, is to provide compassionate care of the highest quality in the transport of your pet. Our caring and knowledgeable team of licensed veterinary technicians and support staff pledge our commitment to provide excellent client service and to promote continuing education to the veterinary community and pet owners.

Our two AmbuVet vehicles are equipped with a specially modified rear compartment that includes localized climate control, padding, stretchers and ramps that ensure comfort during the trip. First aid and oxygen are available for more critical cases.

NYC police and firefighters frequently call AmbuVet when an injured animal is left at their facility. In every instance, AmbuVet® responds immediately with in one of our pet ambulances staffed by licensed vet techs. The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals is glad to have AmbuVet's services available, and encourages all New Yorkers to keep 1-800 AMBUVET phone number handy for receiving professional care during animal emergencies.

AmbuVet Licensed Veterinary Technicians are in contact with local veterinary facilities and are trained in the professional and compassionate transporting of ill animals. In more serious cases, veterinarians are available upon request (for an additional fee) to accompany the pet during transit if specialized medical assistance is required.

Special Operations: We have a working relationship with all regional veterinary specialists including the Animal Medical Center, The University of Pennsylvania School Of Veterinary Medicine and Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. With inter hospital transfers, we will arrange for all medical records and samples (blood reports, treatment sheets, x-rays, biopsies) to accompany the animal for a seamless transfer between veterinary facilities.

We are committed to providing exceptional, personal and compassionate service. When no one else is there, AmbuVet is a reliable alternative that New Yorkers can depend on to help pet owners in difficult times, regardless what the time of day or night.
