Animal Emergency Care
Temperance Animal Hospital can provide animal emergency care any day of the week during regular office hours. Walk-ins are also welcome, so you don't have to waste precious time scheduling an appointment--our team will be ready to accommodate you the moment you walk through the door. Whether your pet is sick or injured, we understand how stressful emergencies can be for you and your pet.
Our goal is for you to always have someone you can turn to to help when your pet needs immediate medical attention. Emergencies take top priority at our practice, and we also partner with emergency centers in the area to assist pets when our office is closed.

The entire staff at TAH are so wonderful. Every time I have taken our dogs there we have received amazing care and service. Just recently we had a very frightening emergency with our youngest beagle. I went in hysterically crying and due to the nature of her injury we were there a long time deciding what to do. We were given all the time we needed, never being rushed. I love everyone there!
Have been using Temperance Animal Hospital for the past 17 years. Always excellent care of my dogs.. I would highly recommend
When I tell Darla annd Nora we're going to see Dr. Smith they act like kids going to Cedar Point they love it there
Amazing staff who are incredibly educated and well informed. Top notch veterinary care!
We took my beautiful, 20 year old cat in today, knowing he would probably have to be euthanized after suffering a stroke. We were heartbroken, of course, but the staff at TAH could not have been more caring and compassionate from the second we walked in the door.
They were sensitive to our pain, and so very respectful and caring with my baby. Thank you to the caring professionals who helped us today.
