Referral and Emergency Services

To provide the best quality of care, a referral to a specialist, urgent care setting, or emergency service may be necessary. The nature of veterinary hospitals has changed over the recent years; first, emergency hospitals and now, urgent care centers have been established.

In-house Specialty Services:
Echocardiograms with a cardiologist
Abdominal ultrasounds with an internal medicine specialist

Referral Services:
Please call for recommendations

Urgent Care:
For urgent care issues, please call and check for availability because we will see you whenever possible. If we cannot accommodate you, we will refer you to another center.

Emergency Services:
Mendon Animal Clinic can’t keep a patient overnight and is unable to handle cases that require advanced care. For emergent problems, we may refer you to another hospital so that your pet can access all that veterinary healthcare can offer. Once discharged from the hospital, we will work closely with you and your pet through the recovery process.
