If you are a Primary Care Veterinarian and need to transfer an emergency patient, please call the nearest CTVSEH location for our current emergency hospital status and consult with our attending emergency care veterinarian for availability.

How is CTVSEH currently taking in Emergency Patients?

CTVSEH has established an Emergency Department Status and Patient Priority System that details the amount of patients we are currently taking in and the patients that will be admitted, thus allowing our teams of doctors and technicians to provide the best medical care and client communication possible. Please call our locations before arriving for more details.

How does CTVSEH determine a patient's priority level?

CTVSEH is currently seeing Emergency and Critical Care patients based on our triage protocols below. All patients having critical life threatening situations will be top priority. Patients not experiencing these critical life threatening situations may experience extended wait times and be asked to either reach out to additional local pet emergency hospitals or contact VetTriage for further triaging advice. Below are examples of patient's and their hospital priority level.

CTVSEH is not affiliated with VetTriage, but does suggest VetTriage as a resource for pet owners in an emergency, as a guide for determining if immediate veterinary attention is warranted. To reach a veterinarian via VetTriage please visit VetTriage
