Emergency Services

At Melrose Animal Clinic, you and your pet are so much more than a number. You’re a part of our clinic family, and as such, we want to provide the support you need when you need it most. We are flexible and available to provide emergency vet care during our open hours. Please call ahead if possible so we can be prepared to receive you.

Additionally, one of our veterinarians is on-call after we close our doors every night. They are available for consultation from 8:00pm-11:00pm. Simply call our number at (781) 662-4888 and ask for the on-call vet to be paged so they can advise you regarding your concerns.

Learn more about when you should call your veterinarian
in the "When Should You Call Us?" video in our video library.

If you believe your pet has ingested something toxic, call ASPCA’s Poison Control Hotline at 1 (888) 426-4435. Or go online at ASPCA.org.
