Communication With Your Veterinarian
A detailed report will be provided to your primary veterinarian should your pet be seen for emergency care or a visit with a specialist at our hospital. We encourage you to follow up with your local veterinarian for continued care, and we work hard to communicate with them so they can take over where we left off. Our life-saving equipment allows our experienced, compassionate team to assist your veterinarian with treatment day or night.
We offer transport to and from our hospital, based on availability.
