What to expect during a pet emergency?

When you come to our animal hospital in an emergency, a technician will triage your pet immediately. Like human emergency rooms, our clinic uses this system to ensure that our team handles the sickest patients quickly and efficiently. We do our very best to ensure all patients are seen in a timely manner, however during high volume times, should your pet have a minor ailment, you will be asked to wait until the emergencies are stabilized. We sincerely appreciate your patience, kindness, and understanding.
