When you have a pet health concern after normal business hours, VetTriage veterinarians are on standby 24 hours aday to assist. For a small fee, you will be connected to the VetTriage veterinarians on a live video chat session. They will triage your pet and give you at-home care guidance, or if they determine hospital care is necessary, refer you to the nearest 24 hour veterinary emergency hospital.


For after hours emergency service we have partnered with VetTriage to offer video telehealth services. The VetTriage veterinarians are available 24/7 and for a small fee, will assess your pet on a live video chat to determine if your pet requires immediate emergency care, or simple monitoring at home until we reopen. In the event that in-person care is needed, VetTriage will coordinate a visit to the hospital on call.
