Although we do not have doctors and staff on premises 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we are able to provide emergency medical care for your pets when we are available.
In the event of an emergency, when possible, a phone call ahead is very helpful. This allows our staff to prepare for your arrival and enables us to provide prompt medical attention. After hours, our calls are answered by the staff at our local emergency facility.
If you have an emergency after our regular hours and you call our hospital phone line, your call is automatically forwarded to the Carlsbad office of California Veterinary Specialists. Their phone number is 760-431-2273. They are open 24 hours daily, 365 days a year. Once your pet is stable, it is possible that they will recommend transfer or follow-up care with us.
