Emergency & Urgent Care
If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us at (716) 839-4043 or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty every night, weekend, and major holiday 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 emergency staff members working together to save a pet’s life. Emergencies can be things such as hit by car, poisoning, seizures, gastrointestinal or respiratory distress, organ failure, and many more.
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 with your regular veterinarian, our veterinarians will work to “squeeze” you in between more serious emergencies. Note that animals are seen in order of how life-threatening is the problem, which may mean that other serious but less life-threatening conditions may be required to wait. 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. Rest assured that when your pet’s turn arrives, we will give the same care and attention as to all other cases.
