Pet Urgent Care and Emergencies

No one expects a pet emergency, but it happens. And when it does, the experienced veterinary staff at Foothills Animal Hospital is here to meet your animal's urgent care needs.  We are equipped with the expertise and state of the art medical equipment to treat your pet for most medical conditions.  If you have any questions about your pet’s health, please give us a call immediately. 

We are aware that urgent care situations can happen at all hours of the day.  While we are willing to see patients on an urgent care basis during regular hours, we refer our patients to BluePearl Specialty and Emergency Pet Hospital or 1st Pet Veterinary Center for after-hours emergencies.  Please click here  for more information.
