Pet Emergency & Specialty Center (PESC)

The Pet Emergency and Specialty Center (PESC) of San Diego is made up of two different animal hospitals---one is located in La Mesa, and the other in South County. Both hospitals are open 24/7 for emergency care to a wide range of animal species, including dogs, cats, birds (such as poultry), reptiles, exotic pets, and small animals.
