Emergency Appointments

We receive emergencies 24/7. We know that you cannot plan these visits and encourage you to be prepared. In a file or a bag, keep the following:

  • All your pet’s medication
  • All your pet’s records: ask your veterinarian for a copy of your pet’s record beyond the bills to have ready in case of emergencies
  • All your pet’s vaccination records

When you have to come to an emergency visit, you can just grab the bag and go.


We believe your presence helps your pet feel better and heal faster. This is why, while your pet is hospitalized with us, you can visit your pet on a convenient schedule. You will be able to sit comfortably in the boarding area and enjoy a book or even the TV. In the interest of privacy, we will book the visitation time in advance.


We require a deposit on all cases with the balance expected at discharge. We accept cash, and most major credit cards.
