After Hours Information

After Hours Emergencies

Because we have a very small clinic staff that already work full-time at the clinic during each day, and due to the increasing demand for high-level emergency care, that often requires a team approach with specialized knowledge and equipment, we regret that we are no longer able to provide regular after-hours emergency care at our facility.

We recommend the following emergency facilities to our clients that need service outside of our regular hours:

Small Animal Emergencies:

The CARE Center (Calgary): 403.520.8387
The Western Veterinary Specialist Center (Calgary): 403.770.1340
Animal Emergency Hospital (Red Deer): 403.347.3277

Equine Emergencies:

Burwash Equine Services (Cochrane): 403.242.1913
Moore Equine Veterinary Center (Balzac): 403.226.2585

Other large animal emergencies will need to seek care at the clinic of your choice in the surrounding towns such as Sundre, Didsbury, Carstairs or Cochrane.

We regret that we are physically unable to meet the needs of our clients with respect to after-hours urgent and emergent care. We are confident that these are the highest quality care options available for our valued patients when facing critical/emergency situations such as trauma/injury/wounds, obstetrical difficulties, colics, and severe illnesses that may require urgent medical treatment, sedation/anesthesia, surgery, patient stabilization and/or overnight hospitalization. We are very lucky to have such excellent emergency care available within an hour’s drive of our clinic.

We would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to all our clients that have been so patient with us during the current pandemic situation. We are happy to announce that we are open again!

We are kindly asking that our clients still wear a mask when they are in the building to protect themselves and our staff. Our waiting room will be limited to one client at a time. All our staff will also still be wearing their masks and taking care to wipe down frequently touched surfaces and sanitize in between clients and patients as we have always done.

If you are uncomfortable entering the clinic, please do not hesitate to call and we are happy to serve you and your pet curbside. As always cats must be in carriers, and dogs must be on a leash for safety and liability reasons.

We know that these have been trying times for everyone, but rest assured your pet is still receiving the highest quality of care that you have always known from our veterinarians and staff members.

If there are any concerns or special circumstances, please feel free to discuss this with our staff and we can take it into consideration.
