Please contact us or come to the hospital during regular business hours if you have an emergency. It is preferable to call ahead of time so that our staff can be ready to begin treatment as soon as possible.
When the situation isn't life-threatening, we can also provide urgent care. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments if you feel your pet needs to be seen before you can get an appointment.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, who are trained and equipped to handle any emergency your pet might have.
If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call immediately. A team will be dispatched to meet you at the hospital. In certain cases, where you aren't able to move your pet safely, our team will also be able to meet you at your home to provide care.
If your pet is exhibiting any unusual symptoms or behaviors, please contact our office or the after-hours emergency pet hospital listed above right away.
