In Case of Emergency…

**In the event that your pet experiences an emergency and Devine Veterinary Clinic is closed or unable to examine your pet we recommend the following Emergency and/or Specialty Clinics in San Antonio.

**If we are open please let us know where you are going so we can send your pet’s medical record to them.

**If you have paper copies of your pet’s records, receipts, medications, etc. please bring them with you to the emergency clinic so they can have as much information as possible to help your pet.

**Also, we recommend you call the emergency clinic before you go to make sure they are able to see your pet. Due to increasingly high demand in the veterinary care field, some emergency clinics are having to intermittently pause taking new patients or may have very long wait times.
