Sick Pet Care

If your pet is sick, we want to see them as soon as possible. We reserve same-day sick appointments for our patients so there is always room to see your pet if they are sick. Less urgent sick visits can often be scheduled with your pet’s regular veterinarian at a time that is convenient for you.

Occasionally, we may feel it is in your pet’s best interest to be seen by an emergency hospital or specialist. We work closely with a number of referral and emergency centers in the area and will help facilitate those visits for you.

While your pet is under our care, they will be treated by experienced veterinarians and veterinary nurses. We have extensive diagnostic equipment in-house and offer digital X-rays, digital dental X-rays, ultrasound, echocardiogram, and an in-house laboratory. Most of our patient’s needs can be met right here with the use of these diagnostic tools and the expertise of our veterinarians.
