• Emergency Animal Hospitals – Kent County

  • In case of emergency outside of our clinic hours

    Due to the nature of a house call practice (previously scheduled appointments, traffic, weather, etc.) it can be difficult for us to provide emergency services. Whenever possible, we try to counsel owners on how best to handle a crisis. For immediate emergencies (including trauma, uncontrolled bleeding, or breathing difficulties), we recommend that you contact one of the local 24-hour animal emergency hospitals listed here.
