Our clinic participates in a co-operative on-call service with other local veterinarians. This allows all pet owners in our community to have access to emergency veterinary services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Be aware that the hospitals are not open to the public outside of regular office hours. After regular office hours, our telephone voice-mail will direct you to the on-call veterinarian’s contact number. See our compiled list of emergency hospitals and directions in our area.
