We’re Here When You Need Us! At Best Friends Animal Hospital and Urgent Care Center, we are available

24 hours per day, 7 days a week for you and your pet!

We stand out in the community because we provide emergency care when most other veterinary facilities are closed. It can be terrifying to be faced with an emergency and it is critical to feel comfortable with the Doctors and nurses that will be taking care of your pet during this difficult time. 24 hour availability means that we are here for your pets in case of emergency or for any needed post-operative or hospitalized care.

Our regular business hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Friday 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., and Saturday 9:00 a.m. – 6 p.m. If your pet has an emergency outside of these business hours, we are here! We have experienced technical staff on site 24 hours per day/365 days per year for our patients. The main purpose of the evening/overnight staff member is to care for hospitalized patients, although they will also ensure the boarders are happy and healthy. As always, one of our veterinarians will be on-site or within a 10 minute response time of the hospital in case of emergency. Whether your pet is a boarder or a hospitalized patient, you can rest easy knowing they are cared for at all times by trained caring staff!

If you believe you have an emergency situation, call us at 406-255-0500. If you have an emergency during business hours, please call to let us know the nature of your emergency and when you will arrive. We will triage your pet and discern if he/she needs emergency care and we will fit you into our schedule. Our goal is efficient, skilled, and compassionate care for your pet.
