Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.

In House Laboratory
Our Kodak Ektachem Serum Analyzer allows rapid evaluation of sick pets, avoiding the delay of sending samples to outside labs. We can efficiently monitor the progress of each case while hospitalized or on an outpatient basis. Routine pre surgical screening is also available to help reduce the risk of anesthesia. In addition to the Serum Analyzer, we are able to perform Feline Leukemia, FIV, Parvo, Heartworm (microfilaria and occult) and various other tests. Several outside labs are used to give full blood profiles when the delay is not critical.
