Emergency Information


We know that some medical events just can't be planned for! While we are not an emergency hospital, we want to be available for you and your pet when an emergency does occur.

When an emergency occurs, we have limited emergency availability but will try our best to see established clients in good standing. During normal business hours, call ahead if possible so we can review your pet's medical record and prepare the treatment area for your arrival.

For emergencies after 6:00pm Monday through Friday, and after 3:00pm Saturday, Sunday or Holidays, call or go directly to:

 Western Carolina Veterinary Emergency Hospital in Hendersonville (828-693-3331)


MedVet in Asheville, NC (828-665-4399)
