Emergency & Critical Care

In an emergency, seconds count. Our experienced staff is equipped to administer the ABC's of basic life support - Airway,Breathing, Circulation/Cardiac compressions. When possible, we ask that you call ahead before bringing your pet in for emergency treatment. This allows us to better prepare for your pet's care.

Emergency care is offered during regular business hours. Because of our staffing of 7 doctors and 36 employees, we have availabilities and capabilities and equipment that can often make a life and death difference. Our staffing from Monday to Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon, makes it extremely probable that a doctor will be available.

If your pet has an emergency outside of hospital hours, we utilize the services of the Regional Emergency Animal Care Hospital (REACH):
