Emergency Veterinary Care for Pets

Emergencies with pets are very scary. Remain calm and call us so we can prepare for your arrival – or direct you to somewhere closer to you. We are not an emergency clinic, but we will always do our best to care for any animal in crisis. Please call us immediately at 902-826-9344 if your pet is having a medical emergency.
