Emergency Care for Pets

Immediate treatment for animals with life-threatening conditions.

Emergencies can happen at any time. At Cochrane Animal Clinic, we are dedicated to helping with your large animal emergency 24/7. Small animal emergency services are also available during clinic hours. Please note that if your small animal requires overnight care, after hours emergency care, or a specialist, we will refer you to an emergency hospital in Calgary. Our team members are highly trained to assess your animal and give them life-saving treatment. If your animal requires after-hours surgery, radiology, or anesthesia, they may be referred to a specialist, especially if we have limited team members on call. During emergencies, we are dedicated to ensuring your animal gets the immediate care they need.
