Welcome to Emergency Veterinary Clinic of Tualatin
The staff of the Emergency Veterinary Clinic of Tualatin (EVCOT) is a highly trained, motivated, and dedicated group of veterinarians, certified veterinary technicians, and veterinary assistants. We are committed to providing the very best care possible for your pets.
Effective February 1st, 2018, our clinic will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are happy to be providing extended hours and addition service to our clients and referring veterinarians. We will continue to work closely with our referring veterinarians and provide the same services to our clients with out newly extended hours.
We accept referrals and walk-ins during our business hours.
Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Update March 17, 2020:
In order to help adhere to social distancing while we continue to operate, all clients that are waiting for an examination room will be asked to either wait outside or in their car until a room becomes available. In addition to frequent lobby cleaning, each room will be cleaned thoroughly prior to rooming another client in order to prevent unknown exposure. Patient visitation will also be limited to critical patients to help reduce the risk of disease transmission.
We will continue to do our best to keep wait times to a minimum, although, the increased sanitation measures and distancing practices as well as possible staffing shortages may result in additional wait times. EVCOT will do everything that we can to provide the highest quality of care while trying to serve the public in as timely a manner as possible. We will continue to triage critical emergencies as usual and I apologize if delays occur during treatment of stable pets.
The AVMA has an excellent resource on their website that I strongly encourage you all to read and educate yourselves about the possible impact on your pets. The information can be found at http://www.avma.org/resources-tools/animal-health-and-welfare/covid-19. In general, there is no evidence that Covid-19 is transmissible from our pets to us, or from us to our pets. The best practice is to make sure that you have enough food and supplies for your pet for at least two weeks of care at any given time.
