Veterinary urgent care is for pets in non-life threatening condition, who need access to urgent medical attention.
Premier – Grayslake is reducing ER hours due to a staffing shortage. We are able to see patients in need of urgent care. While we are currently unable to provide overnight care to patients, we will stabilize patients for transfer to nearby Ethos Veterinary Health hospitals if they are not ready to go home yet.
What to do in an Emergency:
Please call before you come in; a member of our team will let you know if you should come in or divert you to a nearby Ethos hospital:
|1810 E. Belvidere Road, Grayslake, IL 60030|
|Nearby 24/7 Hospitals|
What to Do if You Suspect Your Pet Has Eaten Something Toxic
Gather any packaging or remains of anything that was eaten or suspected of being eaten! This step will help speed up the diagnosis. Please don’t be shy; if it was marijuana or any other embarrassing (or illicit) product, please be honest with our team; it will speed up diagnosis and treatment.
