On-Call After-Hours Care

Call:  (662) 226-0933

Clients who require our after-hours services are encouraged to call the number above. You will be put in touch with our on-call veterinarian, who will assess your pet's health issue and its severity. 

They will then provide you with instructions on next steps, including when and where to meet them. Our on-call veterinary services require a $200 emergency deposit before we can begin providing care to your companion.

Steps to Take In A Pet Emergency

If you are experiencing a veterinary emergency, follow the steps below.

  • Call Ahead If Possible - During regular business hours call us right away. We will try to work you in to our schedule as best as we can. After-hours, call us to be connected to our on-call veterinarian.
  • Follow Instructions Provided - When you call to let Veterinary Associates know you are on your way, we will provide you with instructions on the timing of your arrival and the nature of your pet's treatment. We may also give you advice on how to make your companion comfortable and as safe as possible while you are traveling to our hospital.
  • Remain Calm - Remain calm and be extra careful around your pet. When an animal is in pain, they often react negatively towards anyone trying to help and could bite or scratch.
  • Bring Your Pet In For Care - Do not put yourself at risk! Safely bring your pet to our Grenada veterinary clinic.

  • What situations require emergency veterinary care?

    The following situations are examples of emergencies that require immediate care:

    • Severe bleeding or bleeding that doesn't stop
    • Obvious signs of pain or extreme anxiety
    • Choking, difficulty breathing, or continuous coughing/gagging
    • Fractured bones or severe lameness
    • Seizures and/or staggering
    • Bleeding from nose, mouth, rectum, or blood in the urine
    • Inability to urinate or pass feces, or pain associated with urinating or passing feces
    • Severe vomiting or diarrhea; 2+ episodes in 24-hours

    • Heat stress or heatstroke
    • Refusal to drink for 24 hours or more
    • Unconsciousness
  • How long will we have to wait to see the vet?

    Our Grenada animal hospital is just like a human doctor's office—it can be unpredictable, and you may have to wait. 

    We cannot predict what cases we will see and when they will arrive. If possible, call ahead to find out whether we are able to provide emergency care for your dog or cat.

    If we are unable to fit an emergency appointment into our vet's schedule, we will recommend a dedicated emergency pet hospital for you to visit. 

  • What happens if my pet needs to stay in the hospital?

    Some veterinary emergencies require intensive overnight care. At Veterinary Associates we provide overnight care for animals in need.

    While in our care, our dedicated team will treat your pet as if they were our own.

  • What types of animals do you treat?

    Our veterinarians are able to provide emergency and critical care to dogs and cats.
