We offer 24-hour nursing care for sick and injured pets. We have an ICU ward visible from our central treatment room so we can keep a close eye on our sickest patients. We have automatic fluid pumps to deliver the correct amount of fluid to your pet, oxygen chamber for pets with severe respiratory disease, warming beds, trained nursing staff to continue your pet’s treatment, and a veterinarian always in our 24-hour animal hospital to quickly address any changes in your pet’s condition.
A few of the services we offer include:
St. Francis 24hr Animal Hospital Policies
To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily by appointment. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delay is inevitable. Please realize that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time.
We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
Like a credit card, but better. CareCredit works just like a regular credit card, but without high interest rates, annual fees or pre-payment penalties. CareCredit offers no-interest and low interest payment terms, zero hidden fees, and low minimum monthly payments. You can use your CareCredit card over and over for all your pet's follow-up care as well as annual exams and vaccines. So you can focus on what really matters, like playing fetch and learning new tricks. Learn more by visiting CareCredit.com or asking us for details.
Patient Arrival Policy
For your protection, and that of others, all dogs must be on a leash and properly controlled while in the waiting area or exam rooms. All cats must be presented in an appropriate cat carrier or on a leash.
For your convenience, drop-off appointments are available. A "drop off" means you could bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave him/her with us for a couple of hours. Usually we will ask you to drop off sometime in the morning so our doctors can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, she will give you a call to go over the diagnosis and to give you discharge instructions.
For the safety of all animals in our care, we require that all vaccinations be up to date. Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pet. We recommend that animals be placed on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room.
