We are currently practicing COVID-19 prevention for the protection of our clients and staff so we may continue to provide veterinary emergency care to our community:


For your safety, please remain inside your vehicle while at VEC. A nurse will come to collect your pet and it’s medical history. Your pet will be brought into VEC to triage (check vitals and prepare for examination). Once your pet has been examined, the veterinarian will call or go out to your vehicle to discuss the findings and recommendations.

  • Pets deemed CRITICAL (life threatening situations) will take priority. Please expect longer than normal wait times and prepare accordingly.
  • Dogs mush be leashed, cats must be secure in carriers and VEC staff are not permitted inside your vehicle unless deemed critically necessary.

Please do your best to practice social distancing with VEC staff and limit your party to 2 people.
All clients are required to wear a mask in the presence of our staff.

When services are completed, full payment is due at time of service and we prefer payment over the phone using your credit card, or  We are unable to accept checks at this time and we reserve the right to refuse service for any reason.
