Parkdale Veterinary Wellness Center knows that emergencies can happen day or night. During normal business hours, please call (231) 723-8998 to discuss your pet’s condition. By calling ahead we can give advice for actions to take during transport and prepare for your arrival.
After hours call the same number, (231) 723-8998. You will be directed to press ‘1’ to speak to a veterinary technician who will help you determine if your pet is having a life-threatening emergency.
If your pet needs immediate emergency help, they will direct you to the doctor on call or the nearest Pet ER. Dr. Betts shares emergency duty with the Animal Hospital of Ludington and the Veterinary Medical Center (Ludington) for urgent care Monday – Thursday until 10pm.
Emergency calls at all other times (when we’re not open) will be referred to the nearest 24/7 pet emergency room in Traverse City or Grand Rapids. These pet ERs are well equipped to handle any and all serious emergencies and have a full staff available overnight when we do not.
