In an Emergency

In a life-threatening emergency, we STRONGLY encourage you to take your pet to whichever animal emergency care clinic is nearest to you. They are staffed and equipped to handle animal emergencies, and would be able to begin care quickly upon your arrival.

While VCA Dublin Animal Hospital is not an emergency clinic, we do our best to accommodate our client’s medical emergencies. Many of our staff members have experience working in emergency veterinary medicine, and are very good at working with animals in shock or pain.

It is important to know where the nearest emergency clinic is. Please take the time to locate the emergency hospital closest to your home so you don’t need to look up directions while your pet is critically ill. Also, be careful that you pick an emergency clinic that is open when you need them. Some hospitals are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year, but others are only open at night or certain days of the week.

Injured Wildlife

Even though we do care for exotic pets, by law we cannot care for wildlife due to licensing. Please contact the Wild Forever Foundation at (719) 475-9453 for injured wildlife, including wild rabbits, birds, squirrels, raccoons, snakes, turtles, deer, fox, opossum, etc.

Day-Of Emergency Appointments

We reserve several appointment slots per day that are specifically held for “day-of emergencies.” If your pet has a medical issue that needs to be addressed right away, call our office to see if there are any “day-of emergency” appointments available. There is no guarantee that such an appointment will be available when you want one, or that you will see your regular doctor. These appointments are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and they do fill up quickly in the morning.

Drop-Off Appointments

When an injured pet needs medical care the same day, but all of our appointment slots are full, existing clients may be offered a “drop-off appointment.” If the client accepts, the pet is dropped off at VCA Dublin and a doctor evaluates the patient between their scheduled appointments. It is important to realize that the doctor may not be able to see the pet for several hours, but technicians and assistants will be monitoring them in the meantime.

Urgent Care exams do cost more than a regular appointment because the doctor needs to see the sick pet in addition to their scheduled appointments. We require a deposit upon arrival to cover the cost of the exam and possibly to begin diagnostics. Once a doctor has seen the pet, they will call the client to discuss if the pet needs x-rays, blood work, surgery, or medications. Once an agreement is met, the doctor will begin care for the pet. If additional workup is needed, or if test results need to be discussed, the doctor will call the client again. Once the pet is ready to go home, the doctor or technician will call the client to let them know. The remaining balance is due at pick-up.

In order to better serve our loyal clients, VCA Dublin does not offer drop-off appointments for new clients. In order to use a Drop-Off Urgent Care Exam, you must be a current, active client. Being able to drop off your sick or injured pet for a same-day exam is a perk of being a VCA Dublin client. If your pet is sick and you have never been to VCA Dublin, we encourage you to try the nearest animal emergency hospital.

 

Surgery Drop-Off Hours

When your pet is scheduled for a surgery, you must bring your pet to the hospital ahead of the actual appointment time. Pets need to be dropped off between 7:30-8:00 AM on weekdays.
