We are available 24/7 for your pet’s after hours emergencies. We do not send our patients to a Referral Emergency Clinic just because the symptoms occur after hours. Call our regular number and follow the prompts to get through to our on-call veterinarian. Leave a message (with your name and number) and we will call you back in a few minutes.
When you call, it is helpful to have the following information:
- Summary of what your pet’s symptoms are and how long they have been occurring.
- How frequently have your pet’s symptoms been occurring (for example, vomiting once per hour, once per day, once per week…)
- Your pet’s temperature (the only accurate way to determine if your pet has a fever is with a rectal thermometer).
Our veterinarians are happy to see our patients when an emergency is occurring after hours. Expect the emergency veterinarian to ask you some questions. These questions help us to know what to plan for if we do schedule your pet for an afterhours visit.
Because after hours visits are more expensive than regular hours visits, our clients often appreciate when the emergency vet discusses the options of either seeing the patient after hours or when the clinic opens again, if it seems appropriate based on the symptoms.
