You are closer to your pet than anyone, which means you know them best. If your pet is behaving unusually, or if something doesn’t seem right, it may be a sign of a problem. To find out, we would recommend calling our emergency team. A vet can ask you a few questions over the phone, and tell you whether you should bring your pet in right away, or whether you can wait. If you find out there’s no real problem, your mind will be put at ease.

If you have a non-emergency, please contact us online or call 860-464-1045 with any questions or to schedule an appointment!
