We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet needs. 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 a car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment, absolutely do not hestitate to call or come in immediately. 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. If 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. 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.
Unfortunately, emergencies may happen after our normal business hours. In these times, we refer emergencies to the Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Hospital of Wichita. Their phone number is (316) 262-5321.
