Emergency, Critical and Intensive Care
A staff member is always available after regular clinic hours to answer your questions, and direct you accordingly with your small animal emergency needs by calling 360-757-3722. We are excited to have staff on site around-the-clock to monitor our hospitalized patients. Of course, we are also here for you during normal business hours for any type of emergency.
For your large animal emergency needs, please call 360-757-3722 and a staff member will be available to help you and dispatch a veterinarian as needed.
If you receive our voicemail when you call, it is important to leave a detailed message including your name and the phone number where you can be reached. If you have not heard back from us within ten minutes, please call back. One potential reason for delay could be when our staff is dealing with another emergency. We will do our best to serve you as quickly as possible.
IMPORTANT: Never send an e-mail when you have an emergency. Although we check daily, emergencies cannot wait and you should call us immediately.
Critical care and emergency services are a large part of what we do on a daily basis. At CVVC you can be assured that our advanced technology and state of the art diagnostics can help save lives when your pet is in a severe crisis. Our advanced digital x-rays, in-house blood chemistry and hematology analyzer, ultrasound, and trained licensed veterinary technicians allow us to make a quick diagnosis and begin treatment when minutes count. Our intensive care area is located in the center of the clinic making sure patients who need constant observation are getting it.
When your pet is in serious condition, we are prepared. Between a very advanced intensive care unit (ICU) and doctors and technicians that are trained to deal with your pet, Chuckanut Valley Veterinary Clinic will provide the best of care. While your pet is at CVVC we will keep you updated with their status. It is very important when intense medical conditions arise that your pet receives quick, complete and proper care. We also have staff on site to monitor your pet overnight.
