River Road Veterinary Hospital is well equipped to handle emergency medical visits along with “sick” visits for pets in New Orleans. In the event that your pet needs to see a doctor for anything other than a wellness visit, we make every effort to see you that same day. We would always rather put your mind at ease if you are worried about a pet that “isn’t quite right” vs. taking a “wait and see” attitude. We do schedule appointments, but we will never turn away an emergency or sick pet. If that pet needs continued specialized care, we have hospitalization capability.
