After your primary care veterinarian has referred you to our hospital, you may call to schedule an appointment. During this initial appointment, the doctor will obtain a thorough history, perform a complete physical examination, answer questions, and discuss diagnostic and treatment options. An estimate of charges will be also presented. While many common diagnostic tests and some procedures and treatments can be completed during your consultation, others may be scheduled for a later date.
Appointments are available Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4 pm. We allot 45 minutes for the initial consultation. We will ask that you complete basic paperwork and provide a brief description of your pet’s medical condition. Generally, we are able to schedule an appointment with one of our surgeons within one week.
Emergency appointments are made by referral only. If you feel your pet is experiencing an emergency, please contact your primary care veterinarian and they will facilitate an emergency appointment with the DVSC. Whenever possible, we offer same-day surgery. If your pet’s surgery is not an emergency, it may be scheduled for a later date.
We have a surgeon, assistant surgeon, and technician on call for emergency surgical care and consultations. Our referring and emergency clinic veterinarians can be contacted and are available around the clock.
