What do I do in the case of an emergency and your clinic isn’t open?

Non-urgent messages may be left on the answering machine and will be returned on the next business day.

True emergencies should be taken to the nearest 24 hr emergency clinic. Both Ottawa Veterinary Hospital (613) 725-1182 and Alta Vista Animal Hospital (613) 731-6851 are 24 hr clinics. Please call either before you leave or in- route so that they are ready for you. Take all of your pet’s medications with you.

If you think your pet “got into to something” please take it with you so that the attending vet can determine if it is poisonous and if so how to treat the toxin.

If you wish you can transport your pet back to us once we are open for normal business hours.
