We have a veterinarian and staff on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Our veterinarian and staff can handle emergencies during regular business hours, if needed. These include, but are not limited to hit by car, poisonings, snake bites, dog fights, and extremely ill patients. If you have an emergency during regular hours, please call the hospital and let us know that you are on the way so that we can be prepared for your arrival.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen immediately and an appointment is not available, you are welcome to come to the hospital and drop off your pet to be evaluated and treated between scheduled appointments. If you do not wish to drop your pet off, you are welcome to come in and we will work our best to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. Our receptionist will give you an estimate on approximately how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
