Additional Emergency Resources

The demand for veterinary emergency services is at an all-time high. To provide our community with the best care, we’ve partnered with professional veterinary services to assist our caseload. We encourage pet owners to review these additional resources for urgent or emergency services before visiting our hospital.


Vet Triage

Vet Triage

We’ve partnered with VetTriage, a video triage service, to help determine if your pet requires our emergency services.

VetTriage’s veterinarians are available 24/7 to triage your pet through a live video chat. Their veterinarians will assess your pet and help determine if your pet requires emergency services or if their illness can be monitored at home until your primary care veterinarian is available.

If your pet requires immediate intervention, VetTriage will coordinate directly with our emergency team. In non-emergency situations, VetTriage will provide medical advice or instructions for at-home care.
