Medical Emergencies

There are limited veterinary options for animal emergencies both during the day and after hours on the peninsula. Please establish veterinary care locally for your pet as soon as possible. Most, if not all, veterinary clinics and hospitals are overwhelmed due to the volume of care needed, especially due to the pandemic and the number of animals adopted during the past few years. You can no longer just show up with an emergency; you must call first. In the case you need to seek emergency care outside of Clallam County you will need to be prepared to drive quite a distance and likely wait for many hours at an emergency facility. You will need to call any facility before showing up as well. They are triaging over the phone and many are diverting care to other Washington hospitals. Below is a list of options for care:
