If you think your pet is having a medical emergency, it’s important to remain calm so your pet does not feel stressed or scared while getting the care they need in a timely manner.
Move your pet to safety If your pet is in a dangerous location carefully move them away from a situation where they could further injure themselves.
Contact our hospital Assess your pet’s signs and call us at (914) 457-4000. Explain what has happened to your pet, in as much detail as you can provide, so that our veterinary team can prepare for your arrival.
If you have not checked in online prior to coming in, you can check in to the waitlist once you arrive. Depending on the condition of your pet, our veterinary nurse will triage your pet to assess the urgency of their condition. If your pet is stable, we will give you a realistic wait time for when an emergency veterinarian is available.
If you have checked in on our waitlist, click the dashboard link to cancel your request or call the hospital and let our Client Care Specialists know so we can take your pet out of the waiting queue.
If you are unsure if your pet is experiencing an emergency, we encourage you to call our hospital. We are always here to help you assess your pet’s individual circumstances.

We encourage for someone outside of the household to bring your pet to our hospital. If no one else is available to bring your pet to our hospital, please notify our staff so we can wear appropriate PPE to protect you and our team.
