Emergency Care

Emergency Care

We provide small animal after-hours emergency service at the Plattsburgh Animal Hospital located in Plattsburgh, NY. On occasions, small animal emergencies will be referred to the Burlington Emergency & Veterinary Specialists in Williston, VT, or the Northway Animal Emergency Clinic in Gansevoort, NY based on the availability of our on-call veterinarian. We understand that emergencies don’t always occur during the most convenient time of the day. These veterinary emergency centers are open 24 hours every day, 365 days a year. On those days we can’t offer after-hours emergency service for small animals our on-call answering service will provide you with these options including phone numbers and addresses.

Effective January 1st, 2020 Adirondack Veterinary Hospital no longer offers large animal veterinary services. For large animal services including Large Animal After Hour Emergency Services please contact:
