What To Do In An Emergency

Knowing what to expect when visiting our hospital during an emergency can help make the process easier for you and your pet. 

  • Step 1: Call Ahead If You Can

    We understand that in an emergency, you may be unable to call us in advance, but it is beneficial to our team and your pet if you do. If you have time, you can also complete our New Patient Form before you arrive.

  • Step 2: Get to our Emergency Department right away.

    Upon your arrival, you will be directed to a seat or treatment area. If you have not already done so, you'll be asked to complete our New Patient Form. Your pet will be triaged by one of our team members before a full examination is performed by a veterinarian.

  • Step 3: Assessment & Treatment Planning

    Once your pet's assessment has been completed, our highly trained veterinarians will develop a treatment plan so your pet will receive the best possible treatment.

    We will keep your primary care veterinarian updated with your pet's medical history to ensure seamless, integrated care that meets your pet's needs.

  • Do I need to call ahead?

    If you can, it's always best to call us ahead of your arrival, but we understand emergency situations can develop very quickly and that this is not always possible. 

    If your situation does not allow time for you to call, please do not hesitate to bring your pet to our clinic for immediate veterinary medical attention. 

    It always is best to call us ahead if you can, but we understand that in emergency situations that's not always possible.

  • When is your emergency clinic open?

    We are open 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. 

  • How long will we have to wait to see the vet?

    A veterinary emergency hospital is very similar to a human emergency department — the pace can be unpredictable and you may have to wait. 

    We are not able to predict which cases we will see and when they will arrive, but we will prioritize cases based on medical need. 

    You'll find a comfortable area for waiting, and we will do our best to keep you updated about wait times and the status of your pet.  

  • Will you keep in touch with our primary care veterinarian?

    Yes, we will keep your primary care veterinarian updated with your pet's medical history and files to ensure your pet receives seamless, integrated care.
