Urgent Care

 

Urgent Care

These situations are always traumatic for owners of beloved pets, but at Arvada Flats we work to respond efficiently, compassionately and with the highest level of medicine every time. For later night urgent concerns, Arvada Flats is open until 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday evenings.

Our highly trained staff will triage your pet during your initial phone call to our clinic. In urgent care situations, most clients are asked to immediately bring their pet to our facility to be evaluated by our doctors and staff.

During this initial phone call, or immediately upon your arrival, if we feel it is in your pet's best interest, we may route you to a specialty hospital such as Wheat Ridge Emergency Animal Hospital which is open 24 hours with board certified emergency, critical care doctors and surgeons available.

We work hard to be sure each emergency is given the utmost level of care. Our technicians and doctors do an amazing job at starting IV catheters, getting oxygen if needed to these unstable pets, administering needed life saving drugs or pain medications, treating shock if applicable and then systematically working to diagnose and treat your pet's condition.

It is our goal to provide your pet the care we would want our own pet to receive in an emergency situation. You can trust that we will provide you options to pet care in a timely, caring manner so we can work with you to help your pet in these situations.

In the event of an emergency with your pet when our facility is closed, we refer our patients and their owners to:

  1. Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital
    3695 Kipling St, Wheat Ridge
    303-424-3325
  2. Animal Critical Care and Emergency Services
    1597 Wadsworth Blvd, Lakewood
    303-239-1200
  3. Animal Urgent Care
    7851 Indiana St., Arvada
    303-420-7387

The above are facilities that we work closely with on a daily basis. The information from your pet's urgent visit will be faxed to us by these after-hours clinics and we will add it to your pet's medical chart here at Arvada Flats. Should your pet need follow-up care after its urgent visit, please call us and we're happy to help.
