Emergency & Urgent Care
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty six days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as accidental ingestion of rat poison, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion.
Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, if possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency. If we feel we are not able to adeqately help your animal we may refer you to a 24 hour facility.
If you have an emergency after hours please contact:
