When Seconds Count….
As a veterinary emergency clinic, our critical patients get attention first. If unstable, your pet will be immediately transferred to our Intensive Care Unit (ICU). You may be asked to sign a “critical care” form allowing the veterinarian to stabilize your pet prior to speaking with you. If your pet appears to be stable, they will wait with you until your appointment.
After examination, the veterinarian may recommend diagnostics and/or treatment required, or referral to our specialty services. All diagnostic and/or therapeutic recommendations are presented in an estimate with associated costs. Alternatively, care of your pet may be transferred from our 24-hour vet clinic back to your primary care veterinarian.
