Is your pet having an emergency? For timely care, we will refer you to one of 4 excellent emergency and critical care hospitals that are open 24 hours a day. If your pet seems ill or uncomfortable, we encourage you not to wait until we are open as your pet may continue to get worse. At the very least, please call one of the animal emergency clinics for their advice as to whether they feel a visit is recommended. The BluePearl facilities are located in Skokie (847) 673-9110 and Northfield (847) 564-5775. There is also MedVet Chicago (773) 281-7110 and Veterinary Specialty Center (847) 459-7535.

We will receive reports from them the next morning if they have seen and treated your pet, so we will know what ongoing care or follow-up is necessary.
