Emergency Service


We are no longer able to answer emergency calls between 10:00 pm - 8:30 am.  During weekdays you can meet us at the office for regular hours starting at 8:30 am.  On weekends if there is an emergency that still needs to be seen, you can leave a message and the veterinarian on call will start responding to messages at 8:30 am.


If your pet has a life threatening emergency-

Regular hours emergency:  call (910) 484-2131 and come in right away.

After hours emergency:  call (910) 484-5649.  Please only call if you believe your pet may have a life threatening emergency and want to drive in to be seen right away. We are happy to meet you at the clinic after hours if your pet requires emergency care.  There is an $85 emergency fee. All other tests and treatments are similar prices as office visits during regular hours.

  • We ask that you pay a deposit to cover the minimum expected costs of hospitalization at the time of admission, and that you pay the balance of your bill at the time of discharge.  We accept cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, and Care Credit.  We are not able to provide hospital based payment plans, however in the event you need a payment plan, care credit may be a good option.  Care credit is a credit card for medical bills including veterinary medical bills.  You can apply for care credit online and immediately find out if you have been approved by following this link: https://www.carecredit.com/apply/
