Emergency

We work hard to make sure that there is always a veterinarian on call to see you and your pet on emergency. Please call (541) 386-6658 and follow the prompts on the message service. Leave a message and the doctor on call will return your call. Please keep your phone available. If your call is placed after 10pm, the doctor will only return calls of established clients.
