We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty six days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any situation 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. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen 'urgently' before you are able to get an appointment, our staff will work to accommodate your needs. Please understand that we prioritize scheduled appointments unless your pet has a true emergency. When you arrive, one of our team will triage your pet, and we will give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait for one of our doctors to be available.
