Emergency Service

Our emergency service is available 24/7 for urgent care and life-threatening emergencies.   Referral is not necessary.  Common emergencies include acute breathing difficulty, trauma, toxin ingestion, gastrointestinal distress, anaphylaxis and lameness.    Soft tissue surgical emergencies are performed around the clock.  Our emergency doctors have all successfully completed post doctorate internship training and have extensive hands-on experience.

Patients that present to the emergency service will be assessed by a triage nurse and then seen by the attending doctor as soon as possible.   Our emergency service has a fully equipped diagnostic laboratory, imaging modalities, and expedited access to board certified specialists.   Hospitalization in our fully staffed 24 hour ICU may be recommended based on your pet’s health condition.
