Emergency Services for Pets

Though we hope to never have to see you on an emergency basis, these things do happen. We are available 24/7 for emergencies. We do periodically check other messaging venues but our regular hour’s phone number will get you in touch with a small or large animal vet anytime of the day. If you are ever concerned about your pet’s well-being after hours it is always best to reach us by phone by calling 403.527.4888.

What kind of emergencies do you cover?

We know that with mischievous pets come random accidents. We also know when nature calls, there’s no holding animals back from doing what they must. We’re prepared to handle anything, including porcupine quills being stuck in the skin and emergency C-sections.

How do I know if my pet’s issue is an emergency?

We trust pet owners and farmers to follow their instincts. However, it never hurts to call. When you do, you’ll be directed to a veterinarian 24/7. Since we’re always available we’ll be able to determine whether your pet needs immediate attention or if they can wait for a scheduled appointment. We’ll also provide support by giving you directions on how to best support your pet until a veterinarian can see them.
