We are still open 24/7.
However, between the hours of 3AM- 5AM & 3PM- 5PM we will NOT be receiving patients to allow our doctors to round and perform life saving procedures.
To ensure our health and yours, we are requiring masks to be worn at all times.
Our staff has extensive experience in veterinary emergency medicine. You can rest easy knowing that your pets are always being monitored by a veterinarian and several experienced technicians.
