If your pet is referred to our hospital, please call to schedule an appointment with a specialist and allow two hours for your pet’s initial visit. Please bring copies of your pet’s medical information (records, lab results, X-rays) from your family veterinarian for our medical specialists to review. We offer convenient early admission and daycare for follow up treatment or specialized diagnostic testing. An entire day or overnight stay may be necessary for procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia.

You have an emergency at a time your family veterinarian is not available.

Your pet needs a special procedure such as ultrasound, endoscopy, advanced surgery or specialized therapy.
