Experiencing an Emergency?

During office hours, please call us at (317) 228-0645 so we can assess your emergency and urgent care needs.

While it is not our desire to refer patients directly to an emergency hospital, there are times we have to when our resources are such that we are unable to provide necessary and often urgent care.

Emergency Resources

If you find that you need emergency assistance after hours, we recommend Airport Animal Emergi-Center or MedVet Indianapolis. They are available when we are closed and we trust them for quality care! In the event you have to visit the emergency clinic, we can get the records so we can follow up if your pet needs further care.

For your convenience, we have provided the contact and website information for both after-hours locations here.
