Heart + Paw Walk-In Appointments FAQ

What is a walk-in?

Walk-ins are visits to our Veterinary Center where no appointment is needed. You simply walk into our Center. Due to the nature of the walk-in, wait times may vary. When you check in for a walk-in appointment, our Care Coordinators and Veterinary Team will quickly assess the situation and make sure your pet is not in any distress.

Walk-ins will be seen in order of arrival as well as order of urgency. Please note: is it possible someone may walk in after you, but be seen before you due to the urgent nature of their pet’s condition. Please be patient with us. We will do our very best to see you as soon as possible. Walk-in appointments include a small fee surcharge.
