After-hours (Emergency) Care

Emergency

If you have an emergency, please call

Huronia Emergency Clinic in Barrie

(705) 722-0377

Urgent Concern: 

Please call 705-384-0400 to speak to a triage nurse.

If you have a concern - or you are not sure if it is an emergency - you can speak to an RVT that will take your pet's history, triage your case and will determine if an immediate transfer is necessary. 

If it is a critical case, the RVT will  help transfer your case to the Huronia Emergency Clinic in Barrie, and send all relevant information to the ER team.

For non-critical cases, the RVT will recommend a virtual consultation with one of their online veterinarians. who can - if necessary - prescribe treatments that can be picked up at your local pharmacy. 

There is a $135.00 charge for consulting with an online veterinarian, and if medication is prescribed, there will be an additional fee from your local pharmacy for medication dispensed.

In all cases, our hospital will receive a report that can be attached to the medical history of your pet.

Our Mission Statement

Everything we do, we do with passion, carefully and with kindness, intentionally, and with uncompromising standards. From our surgical equipment, to our staff training and growth, to the way we greet you and your pet. We do things the way we would like our own pets and ourselves to be treated, because we believe you deserve to feel, in your gut, that your are doing right by your pet and your family. That the team and facility that is caring for your pet is truly the best place to be, so that you don't have to worry quite so much about your pet's health. Our team strives to be the "comforting warm blanket" when you and your pet need one.

In order to do that, we need a special kind of team, and that's exactly what you will find here. Our veterinary team is a blend of veterinarians and registered nurses that each have many years of experience; a team that is focused on providing the best care possible for your pet while treating them with patience and gentleness. 

Never be afraid to ask questions. We are here to help you make the best informed, health care decisions for your pet and their lifestyle.
