AfterHours Veterinary Care (AHVC) is a unique concept in urgent and critical care services, which opened to the public in Fall 2010. It was originally opened as an ancillary service of Como Park Animal Hospital, a Saint Paul veterinary icon for 30 years, to provide 24 hour care for its own clients and patients. Now AHVC has grown into an independent urgent and critical care veterinary service and ...now serves the Twin Cities Metro area.
We now have a veterinarian and trained staff on premises 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This includes weekends, overnights, and all holidays.
Our goal is to provide compassionate and progressive medical care during those hours when other veterinarians may not be open, and to maintain respectful relationships with the Twin Cities veterinary community.
Our approach to non-preventative medicine is different from the traditional model of emergency clinics in 3 ways. First, we don’t just focus on emergencies, we see all range of sick pets from urgent to emergency cases. This means we can provide our services at a lower overall cost for most cases, while still providing almost all the emergency care and services provided at large and corporate emergency care facilities. Second, our services are not limited just to dog and cat patients; we also see birds, pocket pets and exotic pets. And third, our unique partnership with Como Park Animal Hospital allows our doctors and staff access to facilities and equipment of a much larger hospital, as well as access to the knowledge and experience of over 30 years in practice. Our clients who already have an established relationship with a veterinarian will be referred back there for ongoing care, while those without one can easily be referred for ongoing preventative care at the same convenient location!
