Update to Emergency Protocol

As of Spring 2019, Between the hours of 11 pm and 8 am, emergency calls will be taken by the Western Veterinary Specialist Centre (WVSC) in the Calgary Northwest (1-403-770-1340). The local emergency phone message will prompt you.

There is no local emergency veterinary care between 11 pm and 8 am in Canmore.

If your pet needs to be seen, you will bring them to Calgary where you will have 24-hour emergency care staff and diagnostics available. If road conditions are too poor for travel to Calgary, we will take calls locally all night. If your pet is too critical to make the trip to Calgary, WVSC will contact us and we will arrange to meet you locally. This protocol means that your late night emergency case will be handled at a fully staffed 24-hour emergency hospital by trained staff, monitored 24/7, and receive the care, tests and treatments necessary for your pet’s well-being.
