After Hours Announcement
For nearly 40 years, our clinic has provided emergency services for clients of Lahontan Valley Veterinary Clinic and also other veterinary clinics in Fallon, Fernley, Yerington and Lovelock. With the population growth in these areas and the establishment of other clinics and veterinarians, the added burden of providing emergency services has escalated to the point that it has exceeded our abilities to continue with this service. Fortunately for our patients some of this growth has included the addition of 2 facilities who provide after-hours emergency care in fully equipped and staffed facilities. As of April 2nd, 2018, Lahontan Valley Veterinary Clinic will be referring all companion animal after-hours emergency calls to Animal Emergency Center or Sierra Veterinary Specialists in Reno, Nevada. These hospitals are staffed with veterinarians, licensed veterinary technicians, and assistants ON SITE during those hours our clinic would be closed. For our equine clientele we will ask that you call Comstock Equine Hospital for your emergencies after-hours.
We have conscientiously weighed the pros and cons of continuing or discontinuing emergency services after-hours and have made this decision with your pets’ best interest in mind. We will continue to provide the highest level of veterinary medical care along with friendly, compassionate service during our regular business hours. We enjoy serving our rural community and value all of our clients both old and new. We are very proud to be able to provide you with 94 years of combined veterinary experience between our doctors and look forward to continuing to grow and evolve with this amazing community and the veterinary profession.
