Emergency Vet Clinic - No Appointment Necessary

In case of an animal emergency, if possible please call ahead. We consider emergencies as priorities and understand that they cannot be scheduled. We will take care of you and your pet right away when you are here. Some situations could be exceptions like the team being already in surgery, a patient requiring 24-hour supervision by a veterinarian or us being busy taking care of another emergency. In those rare cases, we will refer you to a close by 24-hour Veterinary ER facility for the best care possible but we believe those are rare situations. We know in the midst of a pet emergency things can get stressful and emotional that’s why we are committed to providing you with the best emergency vet care in Calgary!


Emergency Vet Clinic Calgary - We Are Here When You Need Us

When you need an emergency vet in Calgary, we make it our goal to help your pet get better as fast as possible. We want your pet to be comfortable and happy too! Whenever your pets are not feeling well, we pride ourselves on having answers much quicker than you would expect. We want to help your pets get back to normal as soon as possible. At Barlow Trail Animal Hospital Calgary we are a close-knit team that remember and care about each pet and owner that come through our doors. We know your pets are part of your family so we are committed to giving every pet owner time and attention so we understand your concerns and leave you feeling confident and assured.


While rushing your pet to our emergency veterinarian is usually the first priority, you may be able to help your pet in the meantime. If he is choking, for instance, you might be able to pull the obstruction out with your hand. Heat stroke victims can benefit from being wrapped in a cool, wet blanket before being transported to our emergency veterinarian.

We understand that the most important thing in an emergency is getting your pet in front of our emergency veterinarian. We don’t require an appointment or even an advance phone call when time is of the essence.
