Emergency Care

Sometimes, they seem to only get sick or injured on Sunday nights! If you have an emergency outside of business hours, please contact one of the following businesses.

Please recognize that emergency clinics take a more aggressive approach to their medicine. Always be your pet’s advocate by asking if the services being recommended are urgent and necessary, or something that could be done by our clinic the next business day.

First, Stay Calm.

If you’ve decided to bring your pet to an emergency hospital:

  • Get clear directions to the hospital before you get in the car, and drive safely
  • Call ahead so that they can expect your arrival. Explaining your case will also help them inform you about things you can do until you get there, tips for transporting your sick/injured pet, possible wait times, etc.

If you’re unsure whether your pet requires a trip to the emergency room, call one of the hospitals and ask.
