Urgent and Critical Care

Emergency situations with our pets can, unfortunately, arise at the most inopportune times.  Here at Blue Sky Bend emergency vet, we will see Urgent Care and Emergency cases throughout the day when needed. Please do not ever hesitate to call our Bend animal hospital if you think your pet is in need of a Bend emergency vet or urgent care visit. If it is outside our normal business hours or on a holiday, please contact the Animal Emergency Center of Central Oregon – (541) 385-9110
