Emergency Services

Just like humans, our animal companions sometimes need emergency treatment. This can be because of an accident or injury, or sometimes just from the sudden onset of serious illness. We know how important it is to get these valued members of your family access to treatment as soon as possible.

What to expect

It can be very frightening having to make an emergency dash to the veterinarian, however we will do our very best to reassure you, while taking compassionate care of your pet.

When you contact us we will initially provide advice over the telephone and advise whether or not we believe your animal needs immediate veterinary treatment. If we feel that your pet does need urgent medical assistance, we will ask you to bring them to us at our clinic where we have the expertise, equipment and medicine to provide the very best care.

We will see your pet as soon as possible after your arrival at the clinic, where an examination will be carried out by Dr. Conrad. We operate a priority first system so that animals deemed in the greatest need after their initial assessment will be seen and treated first, but we aim to ensure that all animals are treated as promptly as possible.

In an emergency, an estimate of costs will be provided during the initial consultation. If you have pet insurance then the cost may be all or partially reimbursed by your policy, but it is important that you check the conditions and small print carefully.

We understand and value your special relationship with your animals and can assure you that when they are in our hands, we will treat your family pets as if they were our own.

In the event of an emergency during normal business hours, please call our office at 719-687-1060. We will most likely have you come to the office right away. If the emergency is after regular business hours, you may contact Dr. Conrad at 719-687-6628. If he does not answer, please leave a message. If you DO NOT receive a call back in a timely manner, please contact Animal Emergency Care Center North at the phone number below. However, if Dr. Conrad is available, he will call you back and make arrangements to meet you at the Clinic if necessary.
