AFTER HOUR EMERGENCY CARE
There have been some changes to our on-call emergency services.
Both Bow River Veterinary Centre and Canmore Veterinary Hospital will be sharing on-call duties. Depending on the given week, you will be directed to one of these practices, regardless of which animal hospital you frequent. All follow-up appointments will be with your usual hospital.
Between our closing hours and 11 pm the Bow Valley on call veterinarian (Either BRVC or CVH depending on the on-call schedule) will attend to the emergency in question.
Between the hours of 11pm and 8am all emergency calls will be directed to Western Veterinary Specialists and Emergency Centre in Calgary for evaluation.
This is to triage incoming calls that require immediate veterinary attention.
- If deemed a LIFE THREATENING emergency the on-call veterinarian will see the patient in Canmore once Western contacts the Dr on duty.
- If deemed NOT an IMMEDIATE emergency a few options are available; either an appointment at Western that evening/early morning, or an appointment at your veterinary hospital the following day.
If you have any additional questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call or email us.
