Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency. 

Hanging Rock Animal Hospital offers a convenient drop-off service at no charge to you.  You may drop your pet off for care between 8-9 am on most days and 7-9am on select days.  You can pick your pet up as late as 6pm once services have been completed.  Don't let that busy schedule slow you down!  While they are here we can clean them up or trim those nails for only a small amount more.

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency and we can prepare the necessary equipment.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.

Emergency and urgent care do incur additional fees which allow us to divert the doctors and nurses from other duties to focus on your pets needs.  In certain situations we will need to reschedule "routine" appointments to be able to provide your pet with the best care possible.  These additional fees allow us to focus our care to your emergency situation.
