If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital instantly. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.

We have a veterinarian and team on duty 5 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has during regular office hours. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to make a call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff 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 to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you get here, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
