Urgent Pet Care
We provide progressive medical, surgical, and emergency veterinary services throughout the week at all three locations. Additionally, our Wenatchee clinic provides emergency and critical care access Friday through Sunday from 8 am to 8 pm.
On-call for after-hours services are:
Monday – Friday: 5:30pm to 8am
Saturday & Sunday: 5pm to 8am
This service is reserved for Emergencies Only.
After-Hours, please call: 509-204-3681
Please note: This is a veterinary triage support line, provided by GuardianVets, and is not a direct line to Cascade Veterinary Clinics.
Currently, our community of veterinarians works together to fulfill after-hours emergency services. As a shared service, the on-call veterinarian Monday through Thursday (nights) will be routed to a separate group within our community, such as Countryside or Animal Hospital of Wenatchee. Whereas, in most instances, on-call after-hours services Friday through Sunday will be provided by Cascade Veterinary Clinics.
At Cascade Veterinary Clinics, our veterinary staff strives to accommodate urgent care cases during normal operating hours seven days a week. However, when veterinary services may be required after 5 pm, please call the after-hours triage service. The triage support line will address your questions and direct you to the on-call veterinarian as needed.
Emergency fees will apply – if the Veterinarian and Technician are called into the clinic. In general, we discourage after-hour calls that can be addressed during normal operating hours when the hospital is fully staffed to handle these cases.
For an urgent care appointment, please call ahead. However, we recognize that emergencies do happen that require immediate attention (‘walk-in’).
As always, we ask for your patience as the nature of emergency and critical care medicine often does not allow for strict adherence to schedules. Our experienced and devoted team will do our best to take care of your pet in a timely and comprehensive manner. Our time and attention will be devoted to patients with the greatest need of medical attention.
