How We Handle Emergencies:


If you have a sick pet that you feel needs to be seen immediately, we consider that an emergency.  

If the normal schedule is full, our staff will do their best to squeeze you in as quickly as possible or allow you to drop your pet off to be seen by our doctor between appointments.  This may mean that others will need to wait or be rescheduled, while we attend to your sick pet. We appreciate your patience and understanding. When you call, we can advise you if there are things which should be done for your pet before or during transport to our clinic.

Pet Emergency

If we are closed, caring for another very sick pet or the doctor is in surgery, you may need to take your pet to the CCVSDennis (formerly C.A.R.E.) located at 79 Theophilus Smith Rd, South Dennis, MA 02660. 

CCVSDennis can be reached at (508) 398-7575.  

If your pet has ingested something that you think may be poisonous, we may recommend that you call the Animal Poison Control Hotline at: (888) 426-4435. There is a charge for this call.
