In Emergencies

In Emergencies

Due to the nature of our profession, plans cannot always be pre–arranged. Our Little Rock number (501) 831-4562 is answered 24 hours, 7 days a week. (Please do not try to reach us for an emergency via e-mail or this web-site as it is not monitored 24/7. ) 

When you call we have emergency personnel to assist you.  An operator will take your message and contact us if it is outside normal hours.   OR   If your pet passes at a time when your veterinarian is not available, consider these options:

  • You may bring your pet to one of the emergency clinics in Little Rock or North Little Rock. These clinics are open after hours, and on holidays, and are kind enough to prepare the necessary paperwork and care for and preserve your pet until we can arrive.

  • If you are waiting for family to arrive to pay their respects or if you would like to wait for your veterinarian or our office to be open we recommend the following:  Place a towel under the pet and keep the room as cool as reasonably possible. If your pet is small enough and you are comfortable with the idea, you may preserve your pet in a cooler/freezer until service can be provided. This will not affect our process in any way.
  • You may want to take this time to remove your pet’s collar (if a collar or necklace is left on the pet, it may be cremated with him/her, we remove metal chains before cremation).  You may want to save a lock of your pet’s fur by clipping some.  

Please note:  We can provide cremation services after hours, on weekends and holidays with advance notice.
