In the event of an after-hours emergency, we refer our patients to the Niagara Veterinary Emergency Clinic (NVEC) in St. Catharines, near Brock University.
If you have an emergency when our office is closed please phone the NVEC at 1-800-465-1414 and then proceed there. We have invested in a membership in this quality after-hours hospital so that they will provide care to our patients when we are closed.
DIRECTIONS TO NVEC: Take the QEW toward St. Catharines. Take the exit for the 406 South. Drive about 12 minutes and take the St. David’s Rd WEST exit… second exit past the Pen Center. Turn left at the THIRD light onto Glenridge/Merritville Highway, and turn left into the THIRD driveway. Address is 3300 Merritville Highway.
The Niagara Veterinary Emergency Clinic opened about 15 years ago. We are confident in their care and it serviced our clients well over the past few years that we have used it for after-hours caed. The facility is clean, well-equipped, well-staffed, up to date and the services are reasonably priced. Although it will be a slight inconvenience for our clients to drive to St. Catharines, we hope you understand that we are upgrading our quality of patient care and we believe this to be the best care available for our patients when our office is closed. The NVEC is open 24 hours a day to provide top notch care to our critical care patient that we refer there.
