If your pet is seriously injured or ill, please contact us as soon as possible at 509-522-0763.

As much as we love seeing your pets, as animal lovers, our hope is that we won’t need to see them beyond regularly-scheduled appointments and that your pet continues enjoying a healthy life for years to come. However, unexpected incidents can and do occur, and it is important to be prepared. That’s why we offer emergency services here at Animal Clinic East. Rest assured, we are here for you and your pet during those difficult times.
