Emergency Pet Care
Mon – Fri: 8am – 6pm
Sat – Sun: 8am – 3pm
UPDATE AS OF 7/16/2020
For our future clients: we have unfortunately had to suspend our acceptance of new clients for the time being. With our current staffing we are unable to meet the demand and in discussion with several other practice owners, have discovered that this is the case with many other hospitals. We have compiled a list of practices that may be able to see your pet. THIS IS NOT GUARANTEED, and please let them know that we referred you:
Parrish Creek Veterinaru Hospital: 801-298-2014
Salt Lake Veterinary Services: 801-261-3655
Willowcreek Pet Center: 801-942-0777
Brickyard Animal Hospital: 801-486-0123 – Does not see birds or reptiles
Lakeview Animal Hospital:801-298-2314
Creekside Animal Hospital: 801-565-1263
You may let them know that our doctors are happy to consult with their doctors on any cases, we are just not able to physically handle the volume of pets at this time. Please let us know if any of these practices advice you that they are not accepting new clients, or if you find someone else who can see you so that we can add them to our list.
**RHDV2 VACCINES ARE AN EXCEPTION. PLEASE CONTACT US TO BE ADDED TO THE VACCINE WAITLIST**
While we have been proudly providing true 24/7 availability for our patients for the last several years we are currently experiencing a doctor shortage which is preventing us from providing this. We deeply regret that we are unable to be here for you and your pet at all times and are working hard to get back to providing this service that is truly a necessity. You will be able to leave us a voice mail at all times which will be promptly returned by a staff member upon opening. Know that, there may also be some times during posted hours in which we have our phones turned to our closed message. This means that we are overwhelmed beyond capacity and would normally have to flat-out turn you away. We so, so, so hate having to do this. If during these times you have a true, dire, life-and-death emergency, go ahead and show up – there may be a staff member in the building taking care of in-house patients.
There are a couple of practices that may be able to see your pets after hours. Please call the office line for the most updated list and their contact numbers. We will provide updates here as things change, and know that we greatly appreciate your loyalty.
Thanks for you understanding,
