24/7 Emergency and Veterinary Specialty Hospital



Emergency Check-in

Emergency clients are now being instructed to check-in and complete registration and consent forms from their mobile phones.

This check-in and registration method allows us to ensure that our patients needing the most urgent care are prioritized. Patients with less critical needs will wait with their owner from their car or their home for convenience and comfort.

Please note: This number does not include Priority 1 patients or patients currently receiving treatment.  We treat the most critically ill and seriously injured patients first.

Saturday Urgent Care

We are now introducing weekend urgent care appointments on a trial basis. This initiative aims to alleviate wait times in the ER while providing an extra option for pet parents, ensuring that your furry family member receives prompt attention when they need it most. We will start offering this service on Saturdays and eventually move to every weekend.
