Our emergency vet is available when your normal veterinarian’s office is closed. Donner Truckee Emergency Vet Services provides residents and visitors in the greater Donner – Truckee – Tahoe area with care for pet illnesses or injuries that just can’t wait for their pet’s normal veterinarian to open. We are the region’s only provider of out-of-hours pet emergency services and we’re open from Friday night thru to Monday morning when normal veterinary practices re-open their doors.

We understand that time is important when it comes to treating your sick or injured pet. You just want to have them feel better or get out of pain as quickly as possible. Our emergency vet can quickly and accurately diagnose and treat your pet’s injury or illness. This quick diagnosis and treatment is made possible by our state-of-the-art pet surgical suite, high-speed ultrasound and a full compliment of the supplies and equipment necessary to treat pets in an emergency situation. We, too, want to get your pet out of pain and back to health as soon as possible and have invested in the medical technology and staff training for treating pet emergency situations to make that happen as soon as possible.

Once your pet has received care from our emergency vet, we will transfer them back to the care of your normal veterinarian.

HOURS:  Weekends 24 hours: Friday 5:30 pm to Monday 8:00am
