24 Hour Emergency Services
A good 24-hour emergency veterinary service should be ready for anything around the clock. Certain factors go into finding such a good clinic. They include the staff's friendliness, types of services offered, and driving distance and above all, providing your pet with superior care. Here are steps that go into finding the right center.
Research the hospital
Pet owners should speak with people they know for service referrals. Pet owners should also request a tour of local hospitals to determine the facility's cleanliness, services rendered and the staff's hospitality. It’s perfectly okay to not only ask for a tour, but to request speaking with a vet.
Brief driving time
A drive time to a hospital should be under one hour. Sometimes this is not possible, especially in rural areas.
Learn what services the hospital offers
A good emergency veterinary clinic should have staff available around the clock. The clinic should also provide the following specialties:
- Internal medicine
- Orthopedic surgery
- Critical care
- Soft tissue surgery
