Notice About After-Hours Services
After-hours services are subject to doctor availability.
Consultations may result in the need for veterinary services to be performed after-hours. In this situation, an available Veterinarian and/or Certified Veterinary Nurse(s) will come to meet you at the hospital.
In all cases where a veterinarian and/or nurse is called in to provide after-hours services to a patient, an after-hours fee will be charged at arrival. The paid consultation fee will be subtracted from the after-hours services fee at this time. These costs will be discussed and explained during your consultation call should after-hours services be deemed necessary. Veterinarians do not have the ability to waive the after-hours services fee.
After-hours services are prioritized to active* Wise Owl Animal Hospital clients.
*Active clients are determined at the veterinarian's discretion.
