A Note About Kindness

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Emergency Veterinarians across the country have seen unprecedented number of patients with fewer staff members.

Our technicians and assistants working with our patients.

We ask for kindness and patience with our doctors and staff. All veterinary ERs currently have long wait times due to reaching capacity. All patients are important, but we must triage the most critical patients first. Non-life-threatening patients may have a longer wait time due to the number of critical patients in the hospital.

We thank you for your patience and kindness.
