emg 003You're never wrong to call if you are concerned about your pet and you should never feel embarrassed about calling a veterinarian. Veterinarians are used to emergencies and we prepare for them. The Grand Rapids Veterinary Clinic has doctors on-call, so don't worry about waking us up. In fact, all AAHA-accredited hospitals like Grand Rapids Veterinary Clinic, are required to provide access to emergency care, either in their own facility or through referral to another hospital.
