Emergency & Urgent Care
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle urgent care situations your pet has. Usually, an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet’s life. If you ever feel that 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. Note: There are some emergency situations where we will advise you to go straight to the ER if your pet's situation warrants it.
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 if we are able and staffed appropriately. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
For after-hours emergencies, please visit one of the recommended emergency hospitals below.

We recommend you call the clinic of your choice prior to your arrival.
Patients at the emergency clinics are treated according to their injury, not first come-first served.
