We're pleased to offer the following services in our Philadelphia Veterinary Clinic:
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible, it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
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. We are not a 24 hour facility so emergencies can only be seen during normal operating hours. If you do have an after hour emergency we recommend taking your pet the Veterinary Specialty Emergency Center located at 1114 South Front St, 215-800-1950.
Emergencies can be things such a rat bait poisoning, hit by car, seizures, difficulty urinating, or any other rapid change in normal behavior. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call immediately.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but 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.
