No one wants to think about their pet having an emergency when the doctor isn't there. However, emergencies after hours can happen, and the doctors of Stoney Creek Veterinary Hospital want to provide you the best options for emergency care for your pet.
Our hospital is open and there are doctors available weekly from 7:30 AM until 8:00 PM, and Saturdays 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM. We also have hospital hours serviced by receptionists and trained technicians on Sundays, 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM.
If your emergency occurs during the hours that we have doctors, please call our hospital immediately to tell us you are on your way. Our doctors will work quickly to squeeze your pet into our regular appointment schedule so that we can get your pet taken care of as quickly as possible.
