The Veterinary Emergency Clinic treats medical conditions that include traumas, difficulty breathing, bite wounds, hit-by-car, gunshot wounds, fever, infection, lacerations, seizures, heatstroke, and allergic reactions. We also see non-life threatening conditions of pets brought in by their owners who work all day and their pet needs to be seen when their regular veterinarian is not available.

Aftercare Of Your Pet

For all patients that are discharged from our hospital, the owners will receive a specific aftercare instruction that will guide them in the continued care that their pet may need.

Extended Care for Your Pet

Some pets may be released to go home within a few hours of admission and may not need immediate care or hospitalization. However, those pets that need additional treatment and tests and will be referred back to their regular veterinarian.

Transferring Your Pet

Some pets may need follow-up care after a procedure at their regular veterinarian and may just need to be monitored and kept quiet. Your pet will be in good hands, made very comfortable, and the necessary pain management and recommended follow-up care will be administered.

Many pets that come to us need to go immediately back to their regular veterinarian when we are closed, but don’t worry, we have that covered. Our nursing staff will help you with the transport and will make sure that your regular veterinarian has the medical records prior to your arrival.

After our veterinarian performs his/her initial evaluation, you will be given a written treatment plan that will include the cost of any diagnostics or treatments that are necessary for your pet. These fees are in addition to the initial examination fee. Total charges depend on the nature and severity of your pet’s condition. Payment is required before admission to the hospital
