After Hours Emergency Clinic

The Veterinary Regional Referral Hospital is known for its outstanding service and dedicated staff. The men and women of the hospital are the best in their field, trained decisively to help save the lives of the special case animals that are referred to them every day. With state of the art technologies and practices, the VRRH is the one stop caretaker for specialty animal surgeries and medical techniques. However, due to the nature of the cases they take, the hospital does not take walk-ins and appointments during regular business hours. This is not a problem though, as the Veterinary Regional Referral Hospital offers an after hours emergency clinic veterinary service for animals in need of medical assistance.

Open only after the regular daytime business hours (from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. on Monday-Thursday and 6:00 p.m. Friday to 7:00 a.m. on Monday), the Veterinary Referral Regional Hospital takes regular cases of injured and sick animals with no referral needed. Acting just as an emergency clinic for pets, pet owners can take their injured love ones there for treatments, diagnosis, and emergency room type care.

Do not confuse the VRRH for a regular veterinarian’s office, however. The Veterinary Regional Referral Hospital only takes on pet patients that need emergency care. If your puppy has gotten something stuck in its throat, your kitten has a bad coughing fit, or your dog managed to break a leg, then make the VRRH your first stop. Again, the VRRH only performs emergency treatment, not every day veterinarian treatment.

Located at 2117 Veterans Drive SE in Decatur, AL, the Veterinarian Regional Referral Hospital is open for emergency services after hours and throughout the entire weekend. If your pet has suffered from a life-threatening or serious injury, please don’t hesitate to bring it in any time during scheduled emergency clinic hours. Please try to give a call before arriving so that everything can be as prepared for the emergency situation as possible. We will do absolutely everything we can to help your pet.

There are veterinarians on staff who handle after-hours emergencies. Emergency care service, that is care for a situation needing immediate attention, does not require a referral and is available only after-hours.
