Urgent Care

We are not a 24-hour emergency hospital and only see pets with urgent care needs by appointment within regular business hours.

We will be ensuring a few same-day or urgent-care need appointments are available with one of our doctors. Please contact us at (250) 727-0003 should you believe your pet is experiencing an emergency so that we can guide you in the right direction. We can never truly know the state of your pet until it is examined by one of our veterinarians.

After-Hour Options
