We're pleased to offer the following services at Bellalago Veterinary Hospital
Whether your pet is healthy or not feeling themselves, our team can get your pet scheduled to meet with a veterinarian. Our front office team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability.
Accidents happen! While we’re open, we accept truly emergent patients. We’ll get your pet stabilized and treatments started; however, since we’re not open 24 hours and not an emergency hospital, we will likely transfer your pet once stable to one of the nearby emergency hospitals. 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.
Truly emergent situations are things like snake bites; poisoning; hit by car; seizures; or open, actively-bleeding wounds. For more information on emergencies and pet first aid, see our Pet First Aid page [https://bellalagovethospital.com/firstaid.html].

Preventative Wellness Packages
To make keeping your pet happy and healthy easier and affordable, we’ve bundled the services and items your pet will need into a yearly package. The packages break the cost of these services and items into twelve payments. Additionally, these services can be scheduled ahead of time to ensure that we’ll remind you when your pet’s examination is due!
We carry many of the commonly prescribed medications and preventatives your pet may need. Often times, we’re able to sell these medications and preventatives at prices similar to outside pharmacies thanks to instant rebates and manufacturer promotions. We’ve also partnered with Covetrus/Vets First Choice [https://bellalagovethospital.vetsfirstchoice.com/] to offer the convenience of an online pharmacy when your pet needs a less common medication.
