Emergency & Urgent Care
Blue Grass Veterinary Hospital has a veterinarian/personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Emergencies can be things such as rat bait poisoning, hit by car, or chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. We will do our best to work you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
During non-business hours, please contact the Animal Emergency Center at (563) 344-9599.
