Caring, Responsive Emergency Veterinarian in Escanaba, MI

Having a pet-related emergency can be overwhelming and frightening. Luckily, Escanaba Veterinary Clinic is Escanaba, MI’s most trusted emergency veterinarian. In fact, we are the only emergency veterinarian within a 60-mile radius to offer after-hours care. The Escanaba Veterinary Clinic and the Thompson Veterinary Clinic (Manistique, MI) have joined forces and alternate weekend on-call.

For emergencies, call 906-786-8020 and when prompted, press 1 for emergency instructions and you will be forwarded to a licensed veterinary technician through Guardian Vet. The technician will discuss your concerns and if needed, contact the on-call veterinarian to assist you further.

We’re Here In Case of Emergency 24/7/365

While we are not staffed 24 hours a day, we offer an answering service that will page the doctor on call for medical emergencies. We offer emergency assistance during and outside of business hours.

If you’re calling after hours, follow the phone prompts to page one of our doctors. We will typically call back within 15 minutes of your message. In extenuating circumstances, there may be a delay of up to one hour.

Emergency Fees

  • Emergency fee during business hours is $90.00
  • Emergency fee after business hours is $200.00

If we determine that your pet requires overnight nursing care or specialty care we cannot provide, we will handle your pet’s referral to the appropriate critical care or specialty hospital.

Blocked & Restricted Calls

What to Do

In certain cases, patients have had trouble receiving a call back from one of our doctors.


This May Be Why

When our doctor calls you back, the doctor is calling from a Restricted or Blocked phone. Some landline and cell phones have a feature that does not allow incoming calls from blocked or restricted numbers, making it impossible for the doctor to return your message.

What To Do

Call your telephone service provider to see if you have this feature on your phone and have this feature removed, so you’re prepared for an emergency.
