Pet Emergency & Urgent Care
Our team at Animal Care Clinic will make certain that your pet is safe while in our care. If you have an after-hours emergency, please call the Pet Emergency and Specialty Center at 619-462-4800.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 5 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually, an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet’s life. Emergencies can be things such as snail bait poisoning, being hit by a car, chocolate ingestion, etc. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment, do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible, it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to “squeeze” you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate of how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
