If your pet is having an emergency we encourage you to come in immediately. It is helpful to know you are on your way so that we can be prepared to treat your pet as soon as you arrive. For our specialty services we do schedule all visits to ensure the most appropriate member of our medical team is available to address all of your questions and concerns.
Please bring all of your pet's medications and/or food to the hospital when s/he is admitted. (Please be aware that by bringing your pet's medication(s) at the time of hospitalization, it can help reduce the financial expense of your pet's stay with us.)
We are happy to keep some of your pet's personal items (special toy and/or blanket) with him/her during his/her hospitalization. However, please understand that we cannot guarantee you will receive this special item back at the time of your pet's discharge. Please be assured that our hospital will supply your pet with comfortable blankets, beds, and even toys during his/her hospitalization.
VCA Capital Area Veterinary Specialty Hospital encourages you to visit with your hospitalized pet during their stay with us. Please call in advance and speak with one of our client care representatives to schedule the appointment for your visit. Please understand that a member of our medical team may not be available to speak with you during your visit if you have not previously scheduled a time with one of staff. You may call at any time, however, to receive updates about your hospitalized pet. Our doctors will call you with an update about your pet at least once daily and, of course, whenever s/he has pertinent or urgent information to relay to you about your pet.
Please be certain your pet's doctor has approved your pet's discharge from the hospital, and you have agreed upon a time BEFORE you arrive to pick up your pet. This will permit us the time to attend to the many details that must be finalized/completed before your pet can be released, including preparation of his/her medications and the discharge instructions. We would like everything to be prepared ahead of time in an effort to minimize your wait.
Many of the pets treated at VCA Capital Area Veterinary Specialty Hospital require ongoing care after their initial visit. In some cases, it may be more convenient for you to have your pet's primary care veterinarian perform these tests rather than return to VCA CAVES. We are happy to collaborate with your pet's primary care veterinarian regarding the continued care of your pet. As part of this collaborative effort and if needed, our team can interpret laboratory test results performed by your pet's primary care veterinarian. Based upon laboratory test results, we can also provide treatment recommendations.
Please be sure to check with us before your first visit to find out what forms and other information you will need to bring with you.
