Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. We also accept emergency visits. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 5 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and multiple technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as a snake bite, rat poison ingestion, hit by car, and so on. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet during normal office hours, please call us and come to the clinic immediately. If you have an after-hours emergency, please call the clinic phone number for further instructions (depending on the urgency of the situation, Dr. Battistella will either meet you at Kowaliga Whole Health, or advise that you take your pet to a 24-hour emergency vet hospital in Montgomery/Opelika/Auburn).

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarian will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen. If possible, please call beforehand for the most efficient service.
