  • How long will we have to wait to see the vet?

    Our Cleveland animal hospital is just like a human doctor's office—it can be unpredictable, and you may have to wait. 

    We cannot predict what cases we will see and when they will arrive. If possible, call ahead to find out whether we can provide emergency care for your pet.

    If we are unable to fit an emergency appointment into our vet's schedule we recommend that you visit the 24/7 animal emergency hospital detailed above.

    Some veterinary emergencies require intensive overnight care. At Mt. Yonah Animal Hospital we provide overnight care for animals in need.

    While in our care, our dedicated team will treat your pet as if they were our own.

  • What types of animals do you treat?

    Our emergency veterinarians are mostly experienced with cats and dogs but will see other small animals, such as birds and rodents, in serious situations.
