If your pet is experiencing a medical emergency and it is during our regular business hours, please call us right away. Our highly trained staff can advise you if your pet’s medical emergency needs to be seen immediately at our office or if you should take your pet straight to an emergency facility where they can receive more intensive care, treatment, and monitoring. Our facility is not staffed 24/7 and certain medical emergencies require intensive monitoring and care, which only a qualified 24/7 emergency facility can provide.
You don’t always know when your pets going to need emergency care after hours, and having a veterinarian you can trust to take care of them when we are closed is very important to us. For this reason, we recommend the following emergency facilities for after hour care:
After Hour Dog and Cat Emergencies:
Emergency Veterinary Care Centers (formerly North Central Veterinary Emergency Center) at one of the following locations:
After Hour Exotic Pet Emergencies:
Exotic animals often hide illnesses well and when they begin showing signs, they are often very sick. We strongly advise you not to wait to bring your exotic pet in for an exam if you believe something is wrong. Often, it’s these early signs that give us the best chance of treating your pet. For after-hour exotic animals (ex. birds, reptiles, and small mammals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, etc.), we recommend you call the following emergency clinics prior to traveling with your pet. Calling first allows emergency facility staff to advise you on wait times and ensure a knowledgeable exotic pet veterinarian is available that day to treat your particular species of pet.
