We provide emergency care during office hours
If you have a pet emergency, please head to our office (get directions). If you are able to call on the way, we can be better prepared to receive your pet, often meeting you in the parking lot with a stretcher.
After Hours: Video Calls
Our doctors are available after hours for video calls (like skype and facetime) so they can see your pet and give a recommendation. This often allows you to avoid the expense of an emergency visit and gives peace of mind. Instructions for doing this are found on the our AirVet page.
After Hours: Emergencies
For emergency after hour care, please contact the North Central Veterinary Emergency Clinic (NCVEC) located in Westville, IN on the campus of Purdue University North Central.
We work very closely with the emergency clinic. Immediately following your emergency visit, NCVEC will pass your pet's case file back to us so we are fully in-the-loop of your pet's situation. Any followup visits and monitoring will be conducted back at our hospital.
