After Hours Pet Emergencies
We have a new, exciting feature that we're now providing for our clients! We now offer triage support!
Our practice partners with GuardianVets to provide you with client communication solutions and technology. GuardianVets' triage solution will enable our practice to offer you after-hours veterinary support.
Here's how it works:
- If you call after-hours, you will speak to a licensed veterinary professional working for GuardianVets.
- GuardianVets is serving as a virtual extension of our team. They follow our practice procedures and protocols already in place.
- GuardianVets will not treat or diagnose our patients. They will triage emergency calls, facilitate ER referrals, gather history for on-call doctors, answer questions and schedule appointments.
Through this partnership, we can now provide veterinary support for our clients when we’re out of the office. You will now have someone to speak to in the event of something being non-emergent or emergent.
If you have any questions, please let me know. We're very excited to offer this new form of support!
If you have an emergency after 10:00pm, we ask that you contact one of the Emergency Animal Hospitals in Alabama listed below. We encourage you to contact the emergency clinic before your arrival to ensure there is a veterinarian on-site.

Emergency Tests & Diagnostics
During your pet’s stay, we provide the highest-quality care and attention. All hospitalized patients are kept in a specialized treatment area where they are closely monitored.
Our vet team is skilled in offering surgical, diagnostic, and medical care and work with compassion and efficiency to ensure a positive outcome.
We offer the latest diagnostics and testing for our urgent care patients at our emergency veterinary clinic, including:
- Blood analysis. A blood analysis can help us determine what is wrong with your dog or cat if they are experiencing an unknown illness or has ingested a toxic substance.
- Digital X-rays. X-rays help us determine what kind of internal injuries your pet might be experiencing after a fight or accident involving a car.
- Surgery. Sometimes pets need to be brought into surgery to repair internal injuries.
- Broken bone setting. We set broken bones for animals to help them heal quickly and properly. Your pet's veterinarian will also help relieve your pet's pain during the healing process.
- Medication. Medicines may be necessary to help your pet recover from a medical emergency or illness. We keep a range of pet medicines on hand to ensure that your pet's needs are covered.
