What to Do in the Event of a Pet Emergency
It’s important to be prepared in case of a pet emergency. Here’s what you need to know if your pet has an emergency situation:
Fill Out Our Patient Admission Form
After you have notified our team that you and your pet are on the way to our facility, please take a moment (when you are able) to complete our patient admission form.
Check In as Soon as You Arrive
Once you and your pet arrive, check in at our front desk. Please let our reception team know about your pet’s symptoms so we can determine the urgency of their condition and give you an estimated wait time.
Discuss Your Pet’s Treatment Options
Our veterinary team will evaluate your pet and determine the best treatment plan for their needs. If your pet not a regular patient of our hospital, we will communicate with your primary vet to ensure consistency of care.
Urgent Care vs Emergency Care
Arrowhead Animal Hospital is equipped to provide urgent care and emergency care for pets. Urgent care differs from emergency care in that it involves treating non-life-threatening conditions. Urgent conditions may require timely treatment to prevent them from getting worse, but they are not as severe or potentially lethal as emergencies can be.
If your pet is experiencing a condition that is not listed anywhere below, contact us at (303) 469-1616 for more information.

After-Hours Emergency and Referrals
Emergencies can and do happen at any time, day or night. Please call our main number (303) 469-1616 during our regular business hours so we can guide you on immediate care for your pet. Should your pet be in need of urgent or emergent care after our hospital hours, you can call us and have your call forwarded to Northside Emergency Pet Clinic, our trusted colleagues who can help you with any problems you have. They are staffed with experienced emergency doctors after hours, on weekends, and 24 hours on holidays.
