Each SAGE hospital provides emergency care 24/7, including holidays.
Please call your primary veterinarian if your pet is experiencing an emergency during regular office hours. If they feel that a referral to one of our specialists is warranted, or that your pet should be seen at SAGE immediately, they will call the closest facility directly and set up the patient as an immediate referral. Regardless of the time of day, you should call ahead when possible, so our team can begin to prepare for your arrival.
A patient experiencing an emergency never needs an appointment to be seen. We practice triage, which is the process of sorting patients based on the severity of their condition. Sometimes this means we must attend to animals not in their order of arrival, but in their order of need.
ASPCA Poison Control
The ASPCA Poison Control Hotline is a resource for pet owners who worry their pet has ingested something that could be toxic. They have a major database of known toxins, their effects, and how they should be treated. Please note there is a fee for their consultation by phone, 1-888-426-4435.
