Emergency Veterinary Services

Bow River Veterinary Centre offers emergency and critical veterinary care for the communities of Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise, Exshaw, Kananaskis, Golden, and Bow Valley. Please call us at 403-678-9595 and our experienced registered veterinary technicians will walk you through your pet emergency. Whether your pet is experiencing an issue that is critically life-threatening, non-urgent, or somewhere in between, our critical care specialists will evaluate your pet’s ailment and guide you through your pet’s health emergency.
Our animal hospital is always there for you and your pets when urgent veterinary care is needed. Even outside of our normal business hours, including holidays and weekends, Bow River Veterinary Centre is still available 24 hours by phone to alleviate your concerns when the hospital is closed. Through our over-the-phone triage service, a critical care specialist will provide first aid, care, and support to ensure your pet arrives at an emergency care veterinary hospital in the best possible condition, and help navigate your arrival at emergency facilities, ensuring efficient and effective care.
