Effective October 31st, 2017 the Rascal Animal Hospital and Emergency Care is open 8 am to 8 pm / 7 days a week year-round. A veterinarian will be on site or on call 24 hours a day to provide care to hospitalized patients. Also, there will be a registered veterinarian technician with other staff members present for hospitalized patients.
Beginning January 1st, 2018 the Rascal Animal Hospital will be operating completely on a walk-in basis.
Due to our hospital working as both a general practice and an emergency hospital, our appointment times are sometimes unpredictable and can result in long waits for our clients. With client feedback and recommendations, we made the decision to stop scheduling appointments and offer walk-in services only.
As a way to help clients manage their schedule and wait time, we are looking to implement an electronic check in system that clients can access both at the hospital and at home via their computer or smart phone. This will work similar to a restaurant call ahead system and will alert clients what their estimated wait time is and allow them to get ‘in line’ from anywhere. More information on this service coming soon.

Dental estimates are provided as a range upon examination since the actual needs of each individual patient are not known until the patient has a thorough examination and radiographs under anesthesia. The average routine dental ranges between $250-400 and advanced dentals can sometimes be as high as $500-700. Dental procedures include:
Extractions if indicated
IV Catheter and Fluids
ECG with Cardiologist review
Dental radiographs or CT
Antibiotics if indicated
Pain medication if indicated
Additional procedures as needed including gingival flaps, abcess treatment, or other therapies.
*Bloodwork is optional for patients under age of 7 years old with minimal dental disease. Old, sick, and debilitated patient as well as patients with severe dental disease must have bloodwork prior to anesthesia.
Advanced Surgical Procedures:
The Rascal Animal Hospital is able to provide a variety of soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries including entropion correction, cherry eye replacement, cranial cruciate tear stabilization, patellar luxation repair, fracture repair and abdominal exploratory. Due to the many factors affecting the final estimate we cannot give accurate price estimates over the phone. All pets must be examined by one of our doctors prior to scheduling a procedure unless they are being referred by another veterinary facility. If a staff member offers you a range over the phone, please keep in mind this is based on average. Your pet’s procedure may be lower or higher than any amount given over the phone. If the procedure your pet requires cannot be provided at our facility, we will give you referral information for continued care.
Information on cat declawing
At the Rascal Animal Hospital, we no longer perform cat declaws. This is usually an unnecessary procedure with many possible complications. It also leaves cats defenseless in the event they escape or are allowed to be indoor/outdoor or outdoor only. Cats are more likely to develop behavioral problems (aggression, fear, urine marking) after declawing procedures. There are many safe alternatives for declawing and they can be found at AVMA Flyer on Declawing.
In medically required circumstances, we will make exceptions. When declawing is performed, the Rascal Animal Hospital surgeons utilize a CO2 laser for the procedure. RAH has invested in CO2 laser technology to provide better surgical care as well as less surgical pain and decreased hospital stay. For more information or questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Declawing should only be done as a last resort and, if done, proper pain control is extremely important. At Rascal Animal Hospital pain medication is not optional. Whenever possible, please consider humane alternatives to this procedure. We reserve the right to refuse declawing procedures to patients based on age, health condition or other risks.
We will no longer accept checks as a form of payment.
