The team at Riverview Animal Hospital is happy to provide support with day emergencies, overnight care to your patients, and surgical services.

We understand you want your patients to be in the best care. Our goal as an emergency hospital is to provide your clients with a 24-hour option. As you are their primary veterinarian, we ensure you are kept up-to-date with any treatment or care given. We value your trust and are committed to providing the same level of care as your client and patient are used to at your own practice. With clear communication between veterinarians, our referral program is designed for our hospitals to work together in the best interest of your patient.

When referring your patient to our hospital for an emergency or specialized appointment, please review our Emergency Referral Policy and complete the Patient Referral Submission Form below. Also, please ensure that you submit all pertinent medical records and contact the doctor that will be managing the case at Riverview Animal Hospital to ensure continuity of care.

Riverview Animal Hospital is committed to doing everything possible to combat the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

As part of this commitment, effective immediately, Riverview Animal Hospital will be instituting the following precautionary protocol to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

For the safety of yourself, our staff, and the community, clients will not be allowed to enter the building. We have initiated a Closed-Door Policy, we have locked our front doors. Please call 506.387.4015 when you arrive for your appointment. We will meet you outside to get your pet. The exam will take place in our hospital with your scheduled Doctor with communication via telephone. In addition, we are limiting pet food purchases to 2 bags/cases per order. You can also place an order through our Online Store by visiting our website.

EMERGENCY CASES

- If possible, please call us at 506.387.4015 to let us know you are on the way so that we can be prepared to meet you upon your arrival at the hospital.

- When you arrive, please stay in your vehicle in our parking lot and call 506.387.4015, and we'll come to you.

- If you do not have a phone or your pet's emergency is immediately life-threatening, please come to the front door and ring the bell.

WE ARE CHANGING OUR EMERGENCY SYSTEM INTO A TRUE TRIAGE-BASED SYSTEM

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.
  • Thank you in advance for your understanding.
