Emergency Care

During Business Hours

It can be frightening and overwhelming when you have an emergency with your pet.  During business hours, Yellow Dog Veterinary Clinic is here for you.  Just call us at 317-900-7723 and we can help you whether that is instructing you on how to provide first aid treatment for your pet at home until you can arrive at our facility or if it is scheduling an urgent appointment with us so we can provide care to your pet as soon as possible.  After arrival at Yellow Dog Vet, we will examine your pet and help you understand what the problem is as well as instruct you on the best treatment options available for your animal emergency.

After Hours Emergency

Here in the greater Indianapolis area, we are blessed to have several after-hour veterinary emergency facilities.  Should you have an emergency after business hours, we recommend you contact the closest facility near you.  Each facility will contact Yellow Dog Vet the following morning and let us know how your pet is doing.  If hospitalization is required, we will work with the facility to determine if your pet is stable enough to be transferred back to Yellow Dog Vet or needs to stay there for continued treatment.  If your pet was not hospitalized during its visit at the emergency facility, we will be sure to contact you to follow up on the care of your pet and make sure all your questions have been answered.  We understand that your pet is part of your family and we are here to help you care for them.

Below is a list of facilities that are available after hours and their locations:
