Our new Emergency service hours will be:

Monday – Friday 5pm – 8am
Saturday, Sunday – 24 hour coverage
We will be open 24 hours on Memorial Day. 

Beginning June 1, 2016 SAVES Emergency Service will transition to nights and weekends. The Surgery service at SAVES will not be impacted by this transition, Dr. Headrick will continue to provide surgery services Monday – Thursday. Procedures for surgery and surgical aftercare will not change. We will have an ER technician and our client care team on site from 6am-6pm on Mondays-Fridays to assist clients by answering questions about discharges or rerouting clients back to their referring veterinarians for day time emergencies. Patients requiring continued hospitalization in the morning will be transferred to their primary veterinarian or another ER/Referral facility. Overnight patients will be discharged by 8am. As always and especially during this transition, we are aware that our communication with the primary veterinarians will be key.
