For after-hours urgent care, here are the steps to take:

    • PetNurse is staffed by veterinary professionals who will discuss the problems your pet is experiencing. They will help you determine if this is an emergency or something that can wait until regular office hours.
  • If together, you and the PetNurse team feel that it is safe to wait until regular office hours, please call our office at 8:00AM the next business day for an appointment.
  • If together, you and the PetNurse team feel that your pet should be seen on emergency:
    • PetNurse will assist you in contacting one of the 24 hour care facilities in Traverse City or Grand Rapids.

You are not alone in your emergency situation. Please understand that emergency veterinary care is ALWAYS available to you when you need it. However, this care may occur at one of the 24 hour care facilities depending on when the emergency occurs or the severity of the situation.
