Emergency Care

Call: (518) 566-PETS(7387)

We offer after business hours emergency services to our existing clients.  However, when specific emergencies arise after the normal business hours that we feel would possibly require intensive care or our after-hour on-call veterinarian isn’t available, we will refer clients to the Burlington Emergency Vet Services in Burlington, VT. They’re open 24/7 to handle only emergencies including 24-hour on-site monitoring of your pet during their sickness. We understand making and going to appointments during the week can be challenging, especially for those pet owners that have busy weekly schedules, so remember we are here for you on weekends as well.
