Emergency Care for Pets

Our team here at Antigonish Veterinary Clinic can care for our patients who are experiencing medical emergencies. We usually see patients on an appointment basis, but we are available in the unfortunate event of a medical emergency. We always have one of our veterinarians on call, and we are available for house calls when necessary.

What should I do if my pet needs urgent care?

If your pet is in need of emergency medical attention please call us at 902.863.3157 to let us know that you are coming to the clinic.

For more details about our emergency care services, you can always reach out to our team. Are you active on social
media? If so, we suggest that you follow us on Facebook, for real-time updates on unexpected closures and our holiday hours.
