Emergency & Urgent Care

During Office Hours

We have veterinarians and personnel on duty 5 and 1/2 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle emergencies. 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:

Poisoning

Dog Fights

Difficulty Breathing

Chocolate Ingestion

Hit by Car

If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
