Making an Appointment

The specialty hospital accepts new clients/pets by referral only. Animal Emergency & Trauma Center welcomes walk-ins and no referral is required for emergency treatment.

Please bring with you all pertinent information from your family veterinarian, such as lab work and x-rays, and your current medications. If you wish, you may have your veterinarian fax us that same information instead of you bringing it. This information is critical to us and may delay diagnosis and/or treatment if we do not have access to it!
