Dear Valued Clients,
Cross River Veterinary Service and All Points Equine are excited to announce our formation of an “on-call co-op” to provide our clients with high-quality emergency care, 24/7. Starting January 8, 2022, the doctors of CRVS and All Points Equine will be sharing on-call duties across both practices on a rotational basis. This means if your animal requires after-hours care, you will still reach out to your practice’s answering service as usual. They will get you in touch with the doctor on-call, who will be from either All Points Equine or Cross River Veterinary Service. As with any emergency we attend, payment will be due at time of service, and this will be paid to the practice who attends your emergency. Once we have resumed normal business hours, your animal’s case will be transferred back to your usual veterinarian for follow-up care.
As many of our clients know, we are currently short-staffed in terms of veterinary help at both practices. This means our doctors are stretched thin when providing both daytime and after-hours care to our patients. Unfortunately, our situation is similar to many other veterinary practices in the country. By forming this co-op, we hope our doctors receive the rest and time-off needed to continue providing the high-quality veterinary care to which you are all accustomed. We ask for your patience and cooperation as we transition into this new co-op, and we appreciate any feedback during this process.
MEET THE DOCTORS – please help welcome any new faces you see during after-hours visits!
