Emergency Services


As much as we love seeing your pets, we hope we won’t need to see them beyond regularly-scheduled appointments and that your pet continues enjoying a healthy life for years to come. However, unexpected incidents can and do occur, and it is important to be prepared.

We are pleased to provide after-hours emergency consultations from a licensed Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. These veterinarians will help to determine whether or not a trip to Upstate Veterinary Specialties is necessary. To reach one of our on-call veterinarians:

  • Call our main number: (518) 766-4600.
  • When prompted, press 1.
  • Your call will automatically be connected to a licensed veterinarian who will triage the emergency. No sitting on hold, no leaving message with a service.
  • Many times, our on-call veterinarian can help prevent unnecessary late night trips to Latham, and will assist you with scheduling an appointment with Chathams Small Animal Hospital at your earliest convenience.

In an after-hours emergency situation, it’s important to know where to go and who to call. Please see our recommended emergency clinic contact information below.
