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 technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion.
If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment during open hours, please call us before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency and next steps. If you have an after hours emergency, we recommend Pet Emergency and Specialty Center in La Mesa. Their phone number is 619-462-4800.
