Emergencies come up when you least expect them.  We are fortunate to have 2 veterinary emergency clinics in the area.  These clinics have veterinarians, technicians and assistants staffing them overnight and during the weekends and holidays.  This staffing allows them to deliver a high level of care throughout the night.  With our schedule of daytime appointments, we cannot offer that level of care when we are not open.


For problems that seem life-threatening to your pet, we ask you to go to one of these clinics. 


If the problem is less than life-threatening or if you have a general question, call our number, 518-695-6953, and leave a message for the next day.
