"An animal could become sick unexpectedly and, when that occurs when a natural disaster occurs, many animal hospitals are closed during that time," said Dr. Steven Fox, President and Chief Executive Officer of Central Veterinary Associates. "We have our facilities open around the clock, 365 days a year, to provide care for your pet. There is a veterinarian available on the premises who will ensure your pet's health and well-being."
"Following emergency care, we will provide your regular veterinarian with your pet's medical records," Dr. Fox said. "We also want to remind the public that our rates for emergency care services are the same as regular care, with the exception of a modest $35 surcharge on your visit."
