We are not an emergency hospital. However, we offer emergent care to our regular clients/patients (seen within the last 2 years).
Our clients should call our main telephone number (985) 446-8824 for weekday, holiday and weekend after-hour emergencies. Our answering service will connect you to the doctor who is on-call, or will relay your phone number and a message so that they may return your call if they are currently assisting another emergency.
Please do not attempt to come to the hospital without contacting the answering service, as we do not have a doctor in the building 24 hours a day. Doing so may delay the care your pet requires, including important instructions for transporting your pet or treatments to provide in route.
Established clients are clients who have been to Ridgefield within the last two years and are in good financial standing with Ridgefield.
