The Urgent Care Service:
The establishment of an urgent care service within our specialty hospital will enable patients with non-life threatening illnesses and injuries to be seen on weekend days and weekday evenings, as referrals from veterinarians or directly from owners . Additionally, established Peak patients will be evaluated for complications related to conditions currently being treated by a Peak specialist.
