Columbia Station, OH Vet
Columbia Animal Clinic
Columbia Animal Clinic is an all walk-in animal clinic. You do not need an appointment for any general veterinary visit, however all surgeries are scheduled. We are open for walk-ins two times per day, once in the morning and once in the evening. We close down in the afternoon for surgeries. We believe that when your pet is under sedation that they should be our main priority.
Our Hours of Operations
Monday – Friday 9:30am till 12:30pm then again from 4:00pm till 7:00pm
Saturday 9:30am till 1:00pm
Last patient check-in is 15 minutes before closing time, no exceptions!
Emergency and Urgent Care
If you feel that your pet has a life threatening emergency please take your pet to a 24 hour emergency hospital. A 24 hour emergency hospital will have the resources and staffing to give your pet the best possible chance. You can find a few local 24 hour emergency hospitals listed on the forms and resources tab.
Dr. Hill is available for urgent care when the condition is not life threatening, if you feel your pet needs to be seen before we are open again for walk-in appointments. Please call us on our main line (440-580-4202) and leave a message on line 2, the emergency line. Dr. Hill will be notified shortly and he will return your call.
Any situation that calls for the veterinarian to come in after hours will produce an emergency charge in addition to the regular charges of the visit.
Open Hospital Policy
Columbia Animal Clinic operates an open hospital. This means that our team welcomes owners to be with their animals during any medical procedure, whether a simple vaccination or a complex surgery.
Yes, there is sometimes a wait, and it could be long. We do everything we can to get through each patient as quickly as possible, but we will NOT sacrifice a patient’s care for the sake of time. We never know what is going to come through our doors, so we have no way of giving you an approximate length of time that you will wait, but we promise that when it is your pet’s turn they will get the best and most complete care possible.
