Emergencies during Business Hours Call (319) 378-9000

If your companion exhibits any behaviors or conditions that cause you concern, call us immediately. Our veterinarians recommend calling ahead when an emergency occurs so they can evaluate the situation and provide first aid instructions, if necessary, over the phone. It also lets them prepare the hospital and other team members for your pet’s arrival. Of course, should the nature of your pet’s emergency not allow time for a phone call, you are welcome to come in for immediate attention.
