After Hours Emergency Service

About Us

Emergency Veterinary Services

During our regular business hours, animals are seen on a medical priority basis, allowing those with more life threatening injuries or illnesses to be treated first. We encourage phone calls to make our staff aware of a patient’s expected arrival. Visiting hours for in-patients are at the discretion of the attending veterinarian.

Veterinary Referral Services

Lee Garrod, DVM, Diplomate ACVECC provides echocardiograms, ultrasounds and medicine consultations with ultrasound on a bi-weekly basis at MVER.  Referring vets should contact our Practice Manager, Beth VanHoose, to schedule an appointment at: bvanhoose@lakesregionveterinary.com.

Discharges

Discharge, transfer or referral for your pet is determined on a case-by-case basis in cooperation with your family veterinarian.  All in-patients will need to be transferred to their family veterinarian’s hospital by 8:30am Monday through Friday.

Fees and Payments

A cost estimate for recommended services will be provided when you arrive with your pet. Any questions should be discussed before care is provided. Payment is due at the time of services. We accept all major credit cards, including Care Credit.
