Though we are not staffed as an emergency hospital, we are equipped to handle most emergency situations. Emergencies are accepted for established patients when possible during normal business hours. In some cases we may not have a doctor available to promptly treat your pet. Your pet’s well-being is our number one priority, and prompt intervention can be critical in emergency situations. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet please call and a receptionist can advise the best plan of action for you and your pet. We care about our patients and want the best possible outcome for them. This sometimes leads us to refer patients to a local emergency hospital where they are staffed and equipped to handle emergencies immediately. Please see the following list of emergency hospitals that are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a week.
