We see Small Animal emergencies for our existing clients during our normal daytime hours.  For those existing clients with a daytime emergency, please call us before your arrival so we can better prepare for your pet, or direct you to a nearby emergency facility if it is in the best interest of you and your pet. 

Due to staffing, we cannot accommodate non-client emergencies at this time.  If you are not a current client and have an emergency, please contact one of the local emergency clinics listed below.  We are also currently only able to accommodate existing clients for any Saturday appointments at this time due to staffing.

For after hours Small Animal emergencies, please contact one of the local emergency clinics below.  If your pet is a patient at WVH and is seen at any of these facilities, they will send us the treatment information so we can help with any aftercare and save it in their medical record here.

Due to a decrease in staff, we are not able to provide in-home euthanasia at this time.  In the event you would like an in-home euthanasia performed, please visit for options available in our area.

PLEASE NOTE that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all veterinary hospitals, including emergency facilities, have seen significantly increased case loads.  It is best to call the emergency facility of your choice before going there to be sure they can prepare for your arrival or help make alternative plans if needed.
