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.
If you are experiencing a veterinary emergency, follow the steps below.

Western Veterinary Hospital provides emergency and urgent veterinary care for cats and dogs during our regular clinic hours. It's always best to contact us in advance if you can, but we understand that in emergency situations that's not always possible.
Our veterinarians see emergency cases during our regular business hours:
The following situations are examples of emergencies that require immediate care:
Our San Angelo animal hospital is just like a human doctor's office—it can be unpredictable and you may have to wait.
We cannot predict what cases we will see and when they will arrive. If possible, call ahead to find out whether we are able to provide emergency care for your dog or cat.
Some veterinary emergencies require intensive overnight care. At Western Veterinary Hospital we may, in some cases, provide overnight and 24/7 care for animals in need. If we are unable to provide your pet with the overnight care they need, we will help you to make other arrangements for their care.
Our emergency veterinarians are experienced with cats and dogs but will see horses in serious situations.
Western Veterinary Hospital is accepting new patients! Our experienced vets are passionate about the health of San Angelo companion animals. Get in touch today to book your pet's first appointment.
