After-Hours Emergency Care

If your cat or dog is experiencing symptoms or exhibiting behaviours that are causing you concern, contact our office as soon as possible or call the after-hours numbers listed below. 

What Situations Require Emergency Care?

Below are examples of emergencies that require immediate veterinary attention:

  • Severe bleeding or bleeding that doesn't stop
  • Obvious signs of pain or extreme anxiety
  • Choking, difficulty breathing, or continuous coughing/gagging
  • Fractured bones or severe lameness
  • Seizures and/or staggering
  • Bleeding from nose, mouth, rectum, or blood in the urine

  • Heat stress or heatstroke
  • Refusal to drink for 24 hours or more

What to do if Your Animal is Having an Emergency

Stay Calm - Try to remain calm and be extra cautious around your cat or dog. Pain can lead even the most loving dog or cat to react negatively toward a person trying to help.

Call Ahead - During our regular business hours, call right away. We will make every effort to provide emergency and urgent veterinary care. If we are unable to fit your friend into our schedule, we recommend that you visit one of the after-hours emergency hospitals listed above.

Our regular business hours are 9:00 am - 6:00 pm Monday to Friday and 9:00 am - 3:00 pm on Saturdays. We are closed Sundays.

Follow the Provided Instructions - When you call to notify the emergency hospital that you are on your way, you may be given instructions on how to administer first aid or make your cat or dog feel as comfortable as possible. Follow those steps as carefully as you can.
