Westside Animal HospitalVeterinary Emergencies
We hope your pet never needs emergency vet care, but if the unexpected does happen, we will do our best to help you through this difficult time.
After-Hours Emergency Number: (770) 670-3852
Call the after-hours emergency number to discuss your pet’s emergency with a doctor. You will receive guidance and possible care instructions. Many times what appears to be an emergency may not be a life-threatening event—just talking with the veterinarian and getting proper medical instructions may ease your mind until your pet can be seen during regular business hours.
If the veterinarian on call feels your pet may have a life-threatening medical illness or injury, you may be instructed to take your pet to a 24-hour care veterinary facility within our area. These facilities are staffed throughout the night and on holidays to give critically sick and injured animals the best of care.
We recommend the Cobb Emergency Veterinary Clinic and Cherokee Emergency Veterinary Clinic for after-hour emergencies:
Cobb Emergency Veterinary Clinic
630 Cobb Parkway
Cherokee Emergency Veterinary Clinic
7800 Highway 92
Northwest Georgia Veterinary Emergency Center
111 John Maddox Drive
Rome, Georgia 30165
Do You Suspect Accidental Poisoning of Your Pet?
Should you believe your animal has ingested a toxic substance, you may wish to contact the Pet Poison Helpline directly.

They have the ability to help every pet, with all types of poisonings, 24 hours a day. Their knowledge and expertise will put your mind at ease when dealing with a potential emergency.
In order to provide this critical service, there is a $35 per incident fee, payable by credit card. This fee covers the initial consultation as well as all follow-up calls associated with the management of the case.
