Emergencies & Treatment
Q: What should I do if my pet ate my medication?
A: Find out what kind and the strength of the medication and call poison control immediately 1-888-426-4435. A consultation fee will be charged. You may also bring the pet straight to AECC.
Q: It is the weekend and we ran out of my pet’s medication could you fill them?
A: No. We are not a pharmacy. In a situation where your pet MUST take the medication at all times, like seizure medication, heart medication, or insulin, a medication may be filled upon examination by our emergency veterinarian. The original medication bottle would need to be brought in with the patient.
Q: How much is a visit to your facility?
A: The Emergency Exam and Consultation Fee is $98. A Specialty Consultation (surgery, neurology, internal medicine, avian & exotic medicine or rehabilitation) is $115. The consultation prices of our visiting specialists (dermatology, cardiology) vary. Please call for more details about our visiting specialists. An in-depth treatment plan will be provided after the physical examination of your pet. Rehabilitation consultations also include your first rehab session and boarding for the day.

A: No. For vaccinations you should visit your primary care veterinarian.

Q: Do your veterinarians make house calls or have an ambulatory service?
A: No. We only provide care within our facility.
