Emergencies and urgent referrals are seen 24 hours a day.


If you have an emergency or urgent consult during normal business hours then please call your regular veterinarian. 


If you do not have a regular veterinarian, please call 225-578-9600.


Outside of regular business hours (between 5 p.m. to 8 a.m.) and during weekends/holidays, an emergency veterinarian is available to attend to your animal. Please contact this veterinarian by using the phone number listed above.


If emergency surgery is indicated, the emergency staff will notify the surgeons who are on-call. Otherwise, the animal will be treated by the emergency staff and then transferred back to your veterinarian or to one of our specialty services during the next business morning.
