Emergency Hospital Open 24 Hours a Day


Lindsay McFadden

Client Service Representative
I cannot recall a time that I was not passionate about animals and their care. I grew up around many animals, so I was comfortable with them at an early age. Our family had a lot of pets, and they were our family hamster, our miniature poodle “Sherlock,” who was nicknamed Houdini and our Chihuahua “Tippy.” As soon as I had the opportunity to have my own fur children, I got my boys: three ferrets named Ferrari (The Polar Bear), Cocoa Butter, Peanut Butter Jelly Pants, and a frilled dragon named Walnut. Fast forward to today, we have our three human children, a Green-Cheeked Conure and a German Shepherd. When it came to my career, the only thing I was sure of was that I wanted to work with animals. Before being old enough to get a job, I decided to volunteer at a dog groomer. I then went to work in retail, which led me to work at a pet store. I was able to get a lot of experience working with animals while I was at the pet store, as we handled dogs, cats, small animals, reptiles and birds. Working at Riverview Animal Hospital is very rewarding – from getting to assist the owners in watching the amazing medical care provided to their pets. Each day presents something new and has its own set of challenges, but our passion for the care of animals is what makes this job the best, and I feel fortunate to be a part of it.

We will no longer have suggested appointment times for urgent care situations.

  • Please continue to call ahead to let us know that your pet is having an emergency and that you are on your way.
  • For our emergency hospital - evenings and weekends will be walk in only. Your pet will be triaged by a Veterinary technician, who will determine the level of care that is needed for your pet. Critical patients will be our top priority, and will be seen first.
  • This will increase wait times for patients that are triaged as non-urgent.
