24-Hour Emergency Care

Our Emergency Services are open and fully staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including weekends and all holidays.  Please do not hesitate to call us at 503-684-1800 or come in if your pet is ill or injured. No appointment is necessary for your pet to be seen by our Emergency Service, but calling ahead to the hospital, when possible, to let us know you are on your way is appreciated.  We see patients on a first come, first served basis in our Emergency Room.  However, all patients are triaged immediately by a technician, and patients in life threatening situations will always take precedence when deemed medically necessary.

Some conditions that may require a visit to the ER include:

  • Airway Obstruction
  • Bleeding Wound
  • Bloat or Distended Abdomen
  • Blunt Trauma
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Difficulty Giving Birth
  • Foreign Body or Toxin Ingestion
  • Fracture
  • Head Trauma
  • Muscle Tremors or Seizures
  • Red, Swollen or Painful Eye
  • Vomiting or Diarrhea
  • Weakness or Collapse

Our team of expert emergency veterinary clinicians work diligently to provide outstanding and professional care. They enjoy the intellectual challenge of managing diverse and complex medical conditions in a constantly changing, fast-paced environment. These compassionate and skilled doctors are able to provide top quality care at a moment’s notice — regardless of the emergency.  They also work closely with the specialty doctors and your family veterinarian to ensure that your pet has excellent, personalized, and continuous care.

Our veterinary technicians play a vital role in the care of your pet. As in a human hospital, these skilled professionals interface closely with patients and doctors, ensuring that each patient is comfortable and receives expert attention around the clock.  Our team is highly trained and can closely monitor patients at all times, notifying doctors immediately if their condition changes.

Overnight Monitoring Package

$250 Flat Fee for Clients

This package can be used any night of the week from 6pm to 8am, for stable patients that will be transferred back to the family veterinarian in the morning.

The patient should be transferred with a copy of all previous diagnostics, IV catheter in place, remainder of IV fluid bag for the evening, and all current oral medications.

This fee includes: Emergency Doctor exam, up to 14 hours hospitalization and nursing care monitoring
overnight, IV fluids pump fee, and administration of any client medications.

This fee DOES NOT include: additional diagnostics performed by the ER clinician (dictated by patient status), and any injections or new medications administered by Cascade.

If the patient needs to remain at the hospital the next morning, for continued Emergency or Specialty
services, we will then prepare the clients a new estimate for hospitalization past that point.
