Emergencies can be things such as rodent bait poisoning, hit by car, wounds from a dog fight or chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel 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.

If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our receptionist will work to “squeeze” you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionist will be able to give you an estimate on how long your may have to wait in order to be seen.
If we are unavailable and your pet is experiencing an emergency we recommend you calling …
