Emergency Policy

We try our best to answer after hours calls, but the honest truth is we cannot answer them all.  With 7000 active clients and 15,000 active patients, we would be called multiple times every single night.  When we are unable to answer the phone, you will be given the number to the Animal Emergency Center in Memphis.  (901-323-4564).  The address is 3767 Summer Ave, Memphis TN.
