Frequently Asked Questions
How can I make an appointment to see a veterinarian?
OFFICE VISITS ARE SCHEDULED BY APPOINTMENT, BUT WALK-INS ARE WELCOME. Especially if your pet has a life-threatening emergency, please call our clinic at (308) 762-7053 to schedule an appointment for a visit.
What should I do in the case of an emergency?
WE PROVIDE EMERGENCY CARE FOR OUR CLIENTS during office hours. For after-hours emergency care, The Animal Center has an emergency mobile phone number, 308-760-2278. We have a veterinarian on-call locally to service after-hour emergencies.
Where can I get my pet's prescriptions filled?
WE OFFER AN IN-HOUSE PHARMACY as a service to our clients. We stock the most commonly prescribed medications for your pet. In the event that we do not carry a specific medication, we will either order it for you, or give you a script to be filled at the pharmacy of your choice. Concerned about cost or convenience when compared to an online pharmacy or mail-order company? Check out: My pet's medication: veterinarian or online?
What are your regular hours?
OUR REGULAR OFFICE IS OPEN Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to noon.
How can I see your entire facility, not just the waiting area?
WE ARE PROUD OF OUR HOSPITAL, and are happy to give hospital tours to individuals or small groups. Individuals wishing to take a look at our facility are welcome to come at any time. We suggest coming in for tours in late-morning or late-afternoon, when we are more likely to have free time for your tour. If you are a small group (Cub Scouts, Brownies, etc.), please call us first at (308) 762-7053 to arrange a tour. You may also click here to see a photo tour of the hospital.
My pet is hospitalized. When may I visit him or her?
YOU ARE WELCOME TO VISIT YOUR PET any time that we are open. We recommend that you call (308) 762-7053 ahead of time, as we have a limited amount of space for visiting families.
Where are you located?
THE ANIMAL CENTER is located at 2350 CR 58 which is across the street from the Alliance cemetery out east on Otoe road (also known as 10th St.) and North on County Road 58.
