Emergency and Urgent Care for Your Pet

Your pet is a huge part of your life, and when an emergency health situation arises, your pet may need immediate attention.

Same Day Sick Pet Care by Your Regular Veterinarian

To ensure your pet is seen in a timely manner, Care First Animal Hospital leaves one appointment per hour per doctor open until that day so that not IF your pet is sick, but rather WHEN your pet is sick, there is time reserved for them by your regular veterinarian Monday through Friday, 7:30am – 5:30pm and Saturday 8:00am to noon.
