Emergency

During our clinic working hours, we have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle most of the urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and a technician working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.

However, If your pet has a medical emergency during after-hours, please immediately contact one of the 24-hours Emergency Veterinary Services Below:

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "First vet for my first pet! It is a really wonderful experience. They have really lovely staff members and even take us to tour in their really fantastic clinic!They have different room for different animal so they can feel great without other pet smell. We see that they pay a lot of attention on our puppy and give a lot of great advise for me as a new owner and we are really surprise that when we use the little tricks that the doctor told us, our little puppy feels nothing when she's doing her shots! My puppy even give the doctor a high five after the shoot is done! We can see all their staff members love animal and we are totally coming back for coming appointment!"

  • "Just as I posted on my Facebook wall, try Dr Hany Naguib at Rutherford Veterinary for the most excellent and thoughtful care! Tucker and I have never experienced better!!"
    Michele Hamilton- Friesen / Edmonton, Alberta
  • "The staff at Rutherford Vet are outstanding! Very helpful, caring and obviously very passionate in caring for animals! I will highly recommend them to everyone!"
    Cheryl Moroszczuk / Edmonton, Alberta
  • "We first visited Dr. Naguib several years ago when our dog Flûte, a cock-a-poo, had had several months of repeated skin irritations which often lead to infections. At that time, he told us that non shedding dogs were often subject to skin problems due to a reaction to protein and recommended a dog food in which the protein is hydrolyzed. Flûte has been happily eating this food and has been allergy free since that visit. Recently, we visited Dr. Naguib in his own clinic which is a very welcoming and state of the art facility. He quickly diagnosed an acute problem and kept Flute for further tests. Shortly after taking x-rays, he sent them to us by e-mail and communicated with us by phone to enable us to understand what we were seeing."
