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 will be given priority over regularly scheduled appointments. We appreciate your understanding should you need to wait or be rescheduled due a unforseen emergency appointment for another patient.
Emergencies & Urgent Care
Emergencies are accepted any time or clinic is open. We have trained veterinarians and personnel on duty 6 days a week. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us, if possible, prior to coming to the hospital. A staff member will then be able to advise you on your particular emergency.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to fit 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. One of your technologist will be involved in the triage of your pet.
Should you need emergency care when our clinic is closed calling our regular number will connect you with an answering service and the veterinarian-on-call will be paged.The veterinarian will tell you how to proceed with the emergency appointment. Do NOT come to the clinic prior to getting in touch with the veterinarian on call and, please, keep your phone line free, so the veterinarian will be able to return your call. Shamrock Veterinary Clinic is part of the Comox Valley On-Call Group, which is a group of five veterinary clinics sharing on call duties. If possible, please bring any medications your pet is currently receiving with you to the appointment.
