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 possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 5 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a rat poisoning, dog attack, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately, during our regular business hours.

Work In Appointments

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.

Drop Off Appointments

Don't have time to wait around for your pet to be seen by a Dr? We offer drop off appointments for those people that have very busy lives and need veterinary care, but just don't have the time to spare during the day. It's simple, drop your pet off in the morning and we will work them into our schedule and you can pick them up at your convenience before the office closes. While they are here they will be spoiled in one of our clean, comfortable kennels or runs and have lot's of attention from one of our kennel technicians!  Please call our office (828)497-3401 and a representative will get you all set up.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I love this vet! Dr. Robbie is the best! Great staff also! The staff is so caring. I had to board my two cats while I was in the process of moving and they took great care of them! Not only that I was worried because my cat wasn't breathing well and she ended up having asthma and Dr. Robbie did everything to get her back to feeling better. My baby is doing great!!"
