Minnehaha Animal Hospital makes every accommodation possible for you if your pet has an emergency. In certain cases, our veterinarians may refer your pet directly to an emergency hospital during regular business hours if your pet requires emergency surgery, continued/overnight care, or immediate specialist care.
If you happen to have an emergency when our clinic is closed, there are local emergency hospitals available. Below you will find their information along with links to their websites.
