Mobile Check-In FAQs
What happens if I opt out of receiving text messages?
A staff member will call you to communicate instead of sending text messages.
Can I make one reservation for multiple pets?
No. If more than one pet needs to be seen please fill out the check-in form separately for each pet.
What if I decide I no longer want/need to have my pet seen?
Reply “9” to cancel your check-in spot or call the hospital and let us know so we can remove your pet from our waiting queue.
How do I know if my pet’s condition is critical and needs to be brought in immediately vs. stable and able to wait their turn?
We understand it can be confusing when your pet is sick if they need to be rushed into the hospital or not. We encourage you to call us at the hospital and are happy to answer your questions to help you figure out your next steps for your pet’s emergency care.
Do you take pets in the order they are checked in? Are you able to give an estimated wait time for my pet to be seen?
As an emergency veterinary hospital, we try to take patients in the order they are checked in, but they are also triaged by a three tier system, which priority 1 patients being seen first. Once you check your pet in we will triage them based on the symptoms you’ve provided and contact you with an estimated wait time. If you believe your pet is experiencing a life-threatening situation, please call us immediately at (505) 266-7866.
