Medical Triage

At McKnight Veterinary Hospital, we make it a priority to see every patient in as timely a manner as possible.  Below is our triage protocol that outlines common cases that we see at the hospital. You may experience one of these medical issues with your fur baby at some point in their life. They can either be critically life threatening , non-urgent, or somewhere in between. This is why at McKnight we have a thorough triaging system to assist in making sure that your pet gets the right care at the right time. As always, when in doubt, simply call 403.457.0911 and a Client Care Representative would be happy to assist you.
