We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week as well as a veterinarian on call 7 days a week all of which are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. 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.

Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our team will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
