We're pleased to offer the following services at Montezuma Veterinary Clinic


Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted at anytime. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 24/7 who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and assistant working together to save a pet's life. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call. Outside of regular business hours you will have to call the emergency line to arrange for a staff member to meet you at the clinic.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
