We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 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 team members working together to save a pet’s life. Emergencies can be things such as straining to urinate or defecate, inability to walk, profuse vomiting or diarrhea, and unresponsiveness. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call. 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, but 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 or schedule a drop-off exam. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
In the event of an emergency outside of our normal business hours, please go to your nearest 24 Hour Emergency Clinic. There are several great options in our area including:

South Paws (703-752-9100) in Fairfax
