New Hours

Animal Emergency Hospital (AEH) has been honored to serve our community, providing 24/7 care for pets in need, for over ten years.

While we will continue to operate and provide care for pets in need, AEH is in a transition period. The nationwide labor shortage has hit the veterinary industry hard and we are struggling to hire enough staff to maintain 24/7 hours of operation.

To ensure that we maintain the quality of care you have come to expect from us, we are transitioning to a veterinary urgent care facility with hours of operation from 8am-8pm Friday through Monday, effective immediately.

We humbly thank you for the trust you have put in us to care for your family members over the years and we hope that you will continue to trust us with their care as we find a path forward in this difficult time.

Welcoming a new pet into your home is exciting, but it can also be a lot of work. Planning and preparing for your furry friend’s arrival means having all your pet supplies ready and keeping unsafe plants and hazardous materials away from your pet. Follow these tips to help you better prepare for your new arrival.

 

#1 Have All Your Pet Supplies Ready To Go

Food, water, and a safe place to call their own should be the first thing your new pet experiences when they come home. Providing your dog with a confined space like a crate or kennel with a bed for them to rest on can help calm their nerves as they enter their new environment. In comparison, a litter box, food, and toys are the main essentials for your feline friends! If your new furry family member has access to multiple rooms inside or outside the house, be sure to provide them with water bowls in several locations to promote hydration.

 

#2 Remove Unsafe Plants

Several common household plants can be toxic to your cat or dog. Lily’s, Aloe Vera, Pothos, Snake Plants, and English Ivy’s are all examples of unsafe plants for your pets. A curious pet in a new environment is prone to explore, sniff and even nibble on your plants and other toxic materials. Remove or move any unsafe plants so they are out of reach for your new pet. 

 

#3 Keep Hazardous Materials Away From Your Pet

Pets are naturally curious, especially when entering a new home. Tucking medications away in cabinets and drawers will prevent potential accidents from occurring. Keeping your cleaning supplies and products out of the way will also help ensure your pet doesn’t get into anything they don’t need. You can check the packaging on any product you are worried about to ensure it’s safe for your pet.
