We offer after-hours emergency services when your regular veterinarian is closed. The goal of the emergency service is to administer quality care while also providing owners with options. Patients will be treated with the intent for follow up to be done by the primary veterinarian the next business day. Our specialists have made themselves available for around-the-clock consultation at our emergency clinician's discretion. Transfer to internal medicine or surgery can be facilitated with a referral from your primary care doctor.
At no point during your pet's hospitalization, will they be left unsupervised. Our specially trained technical staff is in the hospital 24/7 monitoring and administering your pet's individually customized treatment plan. Our trained staff will communicate directly with you about your pet's progress and we encourage owner visits.
We carry a comprehensive line of prescription medications and work closely with outside veterinary compounding pharmacies to customize dosing and flavor options.
