Emergency Services

Pets receiving routine vaccinations, wellness exams, screening tests and deworming are much less susceptible to illness. However, sometimes accidents happen and emergency services are required. Emergencies during office hours are always given priority. Please be patient if your appointment runs late due to another's emergency. You would want the same priority given to your pet should the need arise. 

After hours emergency services provided by North Blount Animal Hospital are a privilege reserved for clients with pets receiving regular preventative health care from us. The cost of an After Hours Emergency Office Visit is $80. Estimates will be given for services & treatments at the emergency evaluation. Please make note of our Payment Policies. If your pet does not receive regular preventative care from North Blount Animal Hospital or in the event that Dr. Brothers is unavailable for an emergency call, you will be referred to one of the area emergency hospitals.

Online Pharmacy Prescription Policy

It is the policy of North Blount Animal Hospital to not authorize prescriptions through internet pharmacies if we carry an equivalent product in the office. We can verify the source of the products and their safety that we get from our distributors or directly from the manufacturer. Plus, many of the companies that offer guarantees on their product will not honor the guarantees if the product is not sold through a veterinarian. So, purchasing through North Blount Animal Hospital protects your guarantees on these products. We thank you for your understanding. Our policy is in place to protect the best interest of your pets.

What Do I Bring With My Boarding Pet?

You may bring everything or nothing. We feed Hills Science Diet Sensitive Stomach dry food to dogs and cats boarding here at North Blount Animal Hospital. If your pet has a preference for another food, you are welcome to bring it and we will feed as per your instructions. Bedding is provided for our boarders also. But if your pet has a special blanket or toy that will make her more comfortable, bring it along and we'll make sure she gets it to cuddle with. There are some toys we may not allow due to safety issues when the pet will not be under direct supervision.

What Services Are Included With A Spay/Neuter Surgery?

All spay and neuter surgeries performed at North Blount Animal Hospital include:

  • Presurgical physical exam by the doctor
  • Preanesthetic medications/antibiotics
  • Induction medications
  • Maintenance anesthetic
  • Monitoring: Temperatrue, Pulse,  Respiration & Pulse Oximetry
  • Technician assistance

What Spay/Neuter Discount Programs Are Honored by NBAH?

Certificates from County Animal Adoption Center and BSNAP certificates will be accepted as payment toward the cost of the procedure being performed on your pet. The client is responsible for the balance. The amount of the certificate alone will not cover the cost of surgeries we do.

We will not compromise our standard of care to perform low cost surgeries. The balance of the surgery cost to the client is dependent on the species, size and sex of the animal. Please call the office for more information.
