At the Austin Veterinary Clinic, we try to see most of our patients on a scheduled appointment basis. Routine surgery and vaccination appointments are typically filled at least two weeks in advance. Please plan ahead and call as early as possible, so that you are able to get the day and time that best fits your needs.
If your pet becomes ill, please call as soon as possible after 8:00 am, to help us find you an appointment, before the day fills up. In the event of a busy day, we may ask you to drop off your pet at the clinic, so that we can examine it as soon as possible, whenever time allows. We will call you when the examination is finished, so you can pick up your pet before closing time.
If you have an emergency, such as a “hit by car”, please come immediately to the clinic and if the severity of the problem indicates an emergency, we will begin treatment as quickly as possible. If possible, please call and let us know that you are coming in and the nature of the emergency.
