What to expect in the ER

Upon arrival, a veterinary technician will evaluate your pet right away through a process called triage. Patients in unstable condition will be seen by a veterinarian first and treated immediately.

If your pet is stable, a member of our patient-care staff will meet with you to obtain information about your pet’s condition, then the emergency veterinarian will meet with you. After examining your pet, you will be presented with recommended diagnostic testing and/or treatment options along with their associated costs. Together, we will decide on a course of action.

While your dog or cat is being treated, you’ll be regularly updated on their status.

If your pet has ingested something that could be poisonous, a call to one of these two helplines, staffed 24/7 by veterinary toxicologists, can help determine if a visit to our ER is in order. If your dog or cat should be seen, the toxicologist will send us a report to help expedite a treatment plan. Note that fees may apply to these calls.
