Emergencies happen. When they do, it’s often a frightening experience – for you and your pet. Take a deep breath. Our after hours emergency services in Whistler are designed to provide optimal care for your pets when the unexpected occurs.
Our after hours services in our Whistler clinic include:
Emergency stabilization and surgery
Emergencies come in all forms – respiratory (like laboured breathing), ocular (eye damage), neurologic (weakness, paralysis, and seizures), cardiac (heart problems), and more. Whatever has happened to your best furry friend, we are equipped to give him/her emergency medical care on the spot.
Cuts and gashes- sometimes just a scratch, but other times lacerations can go from bad to worse fast. If your pet is injured and bleeding, call our emergency team.
If your pet ingests antifreeze, chocolate, grapes, raisins, marijuana, unleaven bread, flea and or tick products, medications, xylitol (an artificial sweetener), or any other foreign or chemical substance, call our emergency team.
Puppy & Kitten Emergencies
Young pets can have some big and serious problems. Their curiosity often leads them into harms way, like near drowning, electrocution, ingestion of potentially harmful substances, and asphyxiation by entrapment or strangulation. If you notice vomiting, diarrhea, intestinal blockages, or choking, you man need to bring your puppy or kitten in; call our emergency team.
No matter the time of night, we offer on-the-spot digital x-ray, ultrasound, blood work, blood pressure measurement, and EKG to determine the source of the emergency as fast as possible.
After the emergency – what’s next?
If your pet requires ongoing care or hospitalization to recover from its emergency, we will help you make the best decision for continual care. This could be a transfer to your family veterinarian or a referral to a specialty clinic. Before we make any recommendations, we always discuss your options and weigh all of the factors involved, such as your pet’s condition, your budget, your desires, and your regular veterinarian’s recommendations.
There’s nothing routine about us. We don’t do regular wellness care.
We are an after hours emergency clinic only. When your regular veterinarian is closed, our lights turn on. We are on-call for after-hours emergencies 5 days/week. As a result, we do not offer routine wellness services like routine exams, elective surgery (including elective spay/neuter), and routine dentistry. We do, however, know wonderful local veterinarians and are happy to provide their contact information. For regular veterinary care, we’ve provided a list of the other pet doctors in the area. Find them here.
