Our home base is London, Ontario – but we will travel almost anywhere within the central and southwestern Ontario area. Please call for details and estimate.
Pet to the Vet Ambulance Service is operated as a fully equipped emergency transportation AND regular transportation service.
As a transportation service, we are available for ANY type of transport including: travel to Toronto’s Pearson Airport, critical care transport to Ontario Veterinary College at University of Guelph for surgery, the Mona Campbell Centre for Animal Cancer in Guelph for radiation treatments, Mississauga Oakville Emergency Hospital for specialist and surgical consults – as well as regular trips to ANY veterinary hospital, physiotherapy center, kennel, etc. Pricing will be determined by fuel prices and distance if outside the city of London. Pricing is in Canadian dollars; we do not accept Interac payment options at this time. Credit card options are available via Square. E-transfer is also available prior to transport. Payment is required at time of service – receipts are issued at that time. As of June 2014, there is now a 20% non-refundable deposit (if booking is cancelled) on long distance transports payable at time of booking.
Emergency services include transportation with equipment: 2 types of stretcher (both rigid frame and sling type – rated for over 200lbs), oxygen, ramp, hind-end support belts. We are qualified to triage an injured animal to keep them stable for transport until your pet reaches its destination hospital; all staff are at minimum: certified by The American Red Cross – with many years of on the job emergency triage experience.
We are also qualified to administer some medications for those clients that are physically unable to do so, or find it difficult for any reason. Included are: insulin by injection, antibiotics, or any medications that are to be given orally. Subcutaneous fluids can be administered if your pet is dehydrated and requires fluids given at home.
The pet ambulance and its equipment are cleaned AFTER EVERY animal with a Bactericidal – Fungicidal – Virucidal – Sporicidal disinfectant which is safe for your pets.
We also work closely with London Police Services and the London Fire Department in emergency situations.
A very important service that we offer that is not offered by any other company in the city: Deceased Pet Removal. We will come into the home and remove the pet during what is the most difficult and emotional time for the owner. Arrangements can be made by either the owner or by us for the body to be taken to their local veterinary hospital or directly for cremation. The whole process is handled with efficiency and dignity.
Do you have a crazy or difficult kitty that just won’t go into the carrier before you head off to the vet?
We are very experienced at temporarily taming feisty felines and popping them into their travel boxes.
If you prefer to do the transport yourself, we can just do the cat capture, if that is all the service you require at that time.
We try to make every experience smooth and effortless for you and your pets.
“To Protect with Courage, To Serve with Compassion.”
