Emergencies do not require a referral or an appointment. However, we do ask that you call ahead to let us know you are on your way so that we can be better prepared for your arrival. We will also ask you for contact information for your regular veterinarian once you arrive so that we can keep him/her updated on your animal’s condition.
We are located at 2200 College Station Rd. in Athens
