Unlike other vets in the Denver area, we exclusively treat Wheat Ridge pet emergency situations. We accept walk-ins from 7:00 pm to 12:00 am Monday through Friday. Without our emergency pet services, you might have to wait until morning to see your regular vet.

Emergency Pet Services Provided by Our Wheat Ridge Veterinarian


As a full-service animal hospital, we treat all types of pets and their emergencies. Some of the most important services you can receive from our veterinarian in Wheat Ridge include:



We work tirelessly to identify your pet’s injury or ailment so we can provide the right treatment for a fast and full recovery. Whether your pet has a broken bone, swallowed something toxic or has another medical condition, we’ll uncover the problem. Our emergency animal hospital is outfitted with the following equipment to perform diagnostics:

  • Modern, on-site X-ray machines to check for broken bones and foreign objects
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG) to test the electrical activity of the heart
  • In-house laboratory to test bodily samples and diagnose an array of issues





An important part of treating your pet properly is to perform physical examinations. Carried out quickly but effectively, exams help us determine the next best course of action for your pet. Our skilled Wheat Ridge veterinarian knows how to treat animals gently and will keep your pet calm even in this stressful situation.

Emergency Pet Surgery


Our fully stocked surgical room allows us to perform emergency pet surgery to remove foreign objects from your pet’s stomach or mend broken bones. If your pet requires a routine spay or neuter surgery, you’ll need to schedule an appointment with your regular vet.

Poison Control


Dogs and cats are curious and experience much of the world around them through their nose. If they become too curious, they might eat something toxic. Everything from chocolate and onions to Aloe Vera and daffodils can be poisonous to dogs and cats. Our veterinarian in Wheat Ridge performs poison control services to determine what your pet ate so we can help him feel well again.

Animal Bite Care


Dogs and cats can be protective and territorial. If your pet gets into a fight, it’s likely he will be bitten by his attacker. We provide a range of animal bite care services, including cleaning wounds, sewing stitches and more.
