OUR EMERGENCY POLICY

If your pet is having an emergency, call 860-774-7650. Quinebaug Valley Veterinary Hospital takes pet emergencies during business hours & extended times after-hours for established clients, whenever possible.* Always attempt to call our number first when your pet is having an emergency. 

If you are a new client with an emergency during business hours, please call our office. We will do our best to help your pet at our veterinary hospital, or we will refer you to a reputable emergency clinic in Connecticut, Rhode Island or Massachusetts that can assist you promptly.

Never use email or social media to reach us during an emergency. Always call 860-774-7650!

*Please note: There are rare occurrences when we are unable to see patients on emergency basis, due to scheduling, weather, holidays or other unforeseen circumstances. In an emergency, it is in your pet’s best interest to be seen PROMPTLY. If we are unable to provide that service, we will refer you to one of our trusted emergency hospitals where your pet can be cared for ASAP.
