WHAT TO EXPECT

Emergency Care

You will be welcomed by one of our customer care specialists. Depending on the type of emergency, your pet may be immediately taken to the treatment area for stabilization where we have access to life-saving equipment. In these circumstances, you may be asked to provide immediate medical and financial authorization.

If emergency stabilization is not needed, a triage nurse will bring you into an examination room to assess your pet’s vitals (heart rate, respiratory rate, and temperature) and obtain a history of events leading up to your arrival at VRCCO. 

Next, the emergency doctor will review the nurse’s notes, perform an examination, and discuss diagnostic and treatment options with you. You will be provided an itemized financial treatment plan for these recommendations.

In some emergency cases, hospitalization is recommended. We offer 24-hour care. Your pet will be closely monitored by our doctors, nurses and staff. Our team will set up a communication plan for you with periodic updates on how your pet is doing as a guest in our hospital.

A treatment plan will be provided for any recommended diagnostics and/or treatments. An initial payment will be required for any procedure, surgery, or diagnostic work-up over $600. We gladly partner with CareCredit and Scratchpay to offer financing services to our clients. Please ask our team for more details. We are also happy to assist with submission of pet insurance claims to your pet’s insurance provider. We provide a 10% discount for pet parents in military service.

We accept cash, VISA, Mastercard, Discover, CareCredit and Scratchpay. Personal checks and American Express are not accepted.

Toxin Exposure

For a complete list of toxic substances visit the ASPCA website.

If you think your pet has ingested a toxin or potentially harmful substance, please call the ASPCA Poison Control Hotline at (888) 426-4435 or visit their website for a complete reference of toxic plants with pictures. The ASPCA does charge a phone consultation fee, but the information you’ll get is very valuable and absolutely worth the cost. Our veterinary team will utilize the ASPCA report in treating your pet when they arrive at our facility.
