EMERGENCY SERVICES


We have teamed up with other area veterinary clinics to utilize a new after-hours veterinary emergency service.  This service, located in Carbondale will offer 24-hour coverage for nights, weekends and holidays.

All after-hour emergencies are encouraged to call the emergency service for assistance at:  618-529-2236

If preferred, the Animal Emergency Center in Collinsville is available by calling 618-346-1843.  Or, the Animal Emergency Center in Scott City near Cape Girardeau can be reached at 573-334-3400

We are excited about this opportunity to offer your pets uninterrupted, consistent quality care 24 hours a day.  We appreciate your confidence in us and thank you for the opportunity to provide the best care possible for your pets.

Please call the ASPCA poison control center immediately (888) 426-4435 for a consultation and instructions from a board certified veterinary toxicologist.  This will also help us use the most appropriate treatment if your pet requires medical care. The Poison Control Center will give you a case number that we at Creekside Veterinary Clinic can refer too if additional instruction is needed, please write this number down and save it. Bring it with you and the Poison Control Center recommended treatment to us.
