Bridging the gap between General Practice & Emergency Medicine.
Urgent veterinary care is for illness or injuries that require prompt attention but are not typically serious enough for a trip to the emergency room. As of January 2023, we are able to provide general preventative medicine services like vaccines, spays and neuters.
We are a full service clinic. We are equipped with most of the diagnostics available at a veterinary ER hospital, including:
- Digital X-rays (with access to assessment by a board-certified radiologist)
- Blood work (CBC, chemistry, electrolytes, blood gas, clotting times) Urinalysis
- Urgent Ultrasound (to assess for any abdominal or thoracic free fluid)
- Tonometry (eye pressure testing)
- EKG, pulse oximetry
We are prepared to perform various procedures including, but not limited to, minor wound management, urinary blockage, porcupine quill removal, broken bones, trouble birthing and trauma as well as major urgent surgical procedures. As of January 2023 we will also be able to offer spays and neuters
We also offer or can arrange for: referral for diagnostic ultrasound exams; blood transfusion therapy; and third party assessment of xrays by board certified radiologists. And while we cannot offer expertise in this field, we can offer urgent care for exotic pets such as rabbits, ferrets, rats, hedgehogs, and reptiles. We are unable to see birds at this time. Please note that we offer exotics care on certain days only.
How it works.
We will be open for same day / same week appointments 7 days a week from 10am to 8pm. For an urgent appointment call 902-444-1644. If we are fully booked you may be able to drop your pet off for the day and pick them up after they’ve been seen. You can also request non-urgent appointments in advance.
