Pet Emergencies & Referrals for After-Hours Emergency Vet Care
We understand that pet emergencies can occur anytime: days, nights, weekends, and holidays. During normally staffed operating hours, we prioritize urgent or emergency cases when necessary. Additional fees may apply to these situations.
Please call our main number at (518) 885-2550 in case of any emergency.
During our normal operating hours, we handle emergency cases as promptly and thoroughly as possible. Please call to advise us of your emergency, so we can be ready for your pet’s arrival. Emergency cases are triaged and handled according to their urgency and severity—those with more urgent concerns will be handled first.
Please understand that emergency situations occasionally require us to reschedule or reassign previously scheduled appointments.
After-Hours Veterinary Emergencies
A Malta Animal Hospital veterinarian or technician carries a pager for those brief after-hours consults, to answer a question, or even to decide whether a trip to the emergency clinic is warranted.
To page a staff member after hours, simply call our main number at (518) 885-2550 and follow the prompts.
