Our appointment schedule is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are triaged anytime our clinic is open but may be referred to one of our partner emergency facilities in the area. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. Please call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 5 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle most urgent care needs your pet may experience. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. Please call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

Full Service Medical Diagnostics and Surgical Facilities

We offer in house blood work, so you can have your results the same day. Our digital x-ray unit provides images that we can show you in the room at the time of your visit! All of our blood work/radiographs/history is linked and accessible anywhere in the hospital at all times. Should your pet need further diagnostics, we will refer you to the appropriate facility here in Richmond. We are equipped to perform all types of surgery and dental procedures, as well. We strive to provide advanced veterinary care in a comfortable environment for both owners and their pets.

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM)

Sometimes, another approach is needed, or something "more" is needed with the care of your pet. That is why Woodlake Animal Hospital also offers acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and nutritional consults. Many people are interested in seeking a more "natural" approach towards their own care, and would like other options for their pets as well. We at Woodlake Animal Hospital want your pet to be healthy and happy for as long as they can be, so we welcome the opportunity to provide care in whichever modality suits the pet best.
