24-HOUR ANIMAL EMERGENCY SERVICES

The Emergency Department at Royal Vista Veterinary Specialists knows that pets aren’t like family, they are family! That is why we offer emergency and critical care, every hour of every day of the year.
Our expert emergency team is comprised of highly trained emergency veterinarians and an exceptional nursing staff who combine their knowledge and skill to treat pets facing even the most challenging medical emergencies.
One thing that makes Royal Vista Veterinary Specialists and Emergency Hospital unique is the close working relationship between our emergency doctors and our veterinary specialists. At any time, on any day or night, our emergency doctors are able to consult with a board-certified surgeon, internal medicine specialist, radiologist, or neurologist to determine the absolute best care for your pet.
PET TRIAGE
If your pet has a medical emergency, we suggest that you contact your primary veterinarian first. If he or she is unavailable, then call us so we can be ready to help immediately upon your arrival. If there’s no time to consult with your primary veterinarian or call ahead to us, then just bring your pet in to see us immediately.
The Emergency Department at Royal Vista Veterinary Specialists is much like that of a human hospital. Upon arrival, our medical team immediately assesses each patient’s symptoms, with the most critical patients being seen first. Urgent, but stable, patients will always be seen as quickly as possible.
WE CONNECT WITH YOUR FAMILY VETERINARIAN
In addition to providing excellent emergent care, we prioritize communication and collaboration between our clients, primary care veterinarians, and our in-house specialty services to ensure that each patient has a treatment plan that is best for his or her individual health needs.
We inform your family vet about your pet’s condition and treatment by providing copies of all medical records, laboratory findings, and treatment plans within 24 hours of your pet’s visit to Royal Vista Veterinary Specialists. You and your family veterinarian will be regularly involved in helping to direct the ongoing care of your pet.

LEAVING YOUR PET AT HOME ALONE
If you are using a pet sitter while you are away, be certain to leave a phone number where you can be reached as well as the phone number of your veterinarian and the phone number for your local emergency clinic. Make sure that your pet sitter is aware of any health issues or medications your pet is taking. Discuss the plan for any financial limitations with the pet sitter in case you are not available if an emergency occurs. Make sure there is at least a contact number where your pet sitter can reach you.
