When your pet is really sick or in need of emergency care, where can you turn?
Our Emergency service, available 24 hours a day, is based at the Central Saanich Animal Hospital. We have trained staff on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer your calls and care for your pet when they require hospitalization. Our Drs are here until 1:00 AM nightly and available on call after that. We take our commitment to you and your pets seriously!
When your pet is in urgent and immediate need of help, you might not think about all the resourses that are needed to maintain a fully equipped hospital "at the ready" to meet those needs. In addition to staff, it requires a fully stocked emergency pharmacy, advanced imaging equipment such as digital x-ray, ultrasound, flouroscopy as well as video and rigid endoscopy. If your pet needs help breathing, a respirator and the ability to monitor blood gas and other vital parameters is essential. If your pet needs surgery at 3am, staff and Drs willing to meet that need might make the difference between life and death. At Shaw Pet and Equine, every pet is treated as if they were our own. We respect each animal's life as the only life they are given and will do everything we can to help them live a long, comfortable and happy life.
