We remain open to provide care for your pets. We are following the direction of government and regulatory authorities and have implemented hospital and visit protocols to keep both you and our team safe. For regular updates on our hours and visit protocols, please follow our social media platforms.
We know how difficult it can be to say goodbye to a beloved pet. Our caring and committed staff want to make the process as comfortable as possible for both our patients and their owners. We also understand that sometimes, their health issues can be overwhelming and there is the option to relieve their suffering.
If you feel that it is time to let your pet cross the rainbow bridge, our hospital is open any time of day or night, every day of the year. You are most welcome to come in for a consultation with one of our veterinarians who will guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have. If you are unsure if this option is best for your pet, you may give us a call to discuss your options before you come in. Alternatively, please don’t hesitate to walk-in and speak with one of our team members as well.
At Central Island Veterinary Emergency Hospital, we provide a full range of aftercare options dependent on your needs. They include home burial dependent on local bylaws, communal or private cremation options, and keepsakes to help commemorate your furry family member.
