Day Practices that See Emergencies After Hours
The following clinics are not Emergency Clinics by design, but they do see emergency cases after hours.
We hope you don’t need their services, but if you do, you have the information.
After your visit with an emergency clinic, your pet’s file should be faxed or emailed to us so we know what has happened, and how your little one is doing. We also recommend that you save any records provided to you to bring with you on your next visit.
