In case of an emergency, you can call our main clinic at (701) 775-0549 and if we are not on call, the call will be forwarded to the appropriate hospital.
  • It is imperative that you call before you bring your pet to the hospital because you need to make sure you are going to the correct hospital for that day.

  • We accept walk-ins, but please note that we cannot guarantee we will have openings on that day.
  • Please let us know if you have multiple pets as this allows us to schedule more time for you.
