Clinical services alert

Updated Oct. 21, 2022

Due to high demand and limited staff, the WCVM Veterinary Medical Centre (VMC) is limiting its after-hours service for small animal emergencies. Beginning on Friday, Oct. 21, 2022, and continuing until Monday, Jan. 30, 2023, the VMC will decrease its after-hours service for small animal emergency and critical care. 

• The VMC’s clinical team will restrict patient intake to life-threatening cases (red zone) only from 10 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. each evening/night.

• Whenever staffing levels and caseload permits, the clinical team will see patients that fall under the urgent condition (orange zone).

Because of the high demand for emergency and critical care services, the VMC may need to restrict patient intake to life-threatening cases — even during daytime hours.

• CALL 306-966-7126 before bringing your pet to the VMC

• EXPECT longer than normal wait times for clinical service

• BE PREPARED for a change in clinical services. The VMC may be unable to accept non-urgent cases if caseload is high.

Thank you for your understanding!

Clinical services update

Updated August 29, 2022

The VMC is following University of Saskatchewan policy and will continue to be a mask-friendly environment.

Masks are not mandatory indoors, but the VMC is still highly recommending their use. Individual clinicians may request pet guardians to wear masks in exam rooms on a case-by-case basis, such as when physical distancing is not possible.

Thank you for your co-operation!
