golden retriever veterinary exam

This Issue’s Helpful Hint

Our dedicated staff are committed to providing preventive and advanced veterinary specialty care to patients while educating future veterinarians and advancing animal and human health.

But what should you do when it comes time to bring your companion animal to the Hixson-Lied Small Animal Hospital?

First you should know our specialty services take appointments from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Hixson-Lied Small Animal Hospital also provides emergency services 24 hours a day, but it is still best to call ahead to forewarn our clinicians you are bringing a patient in.

Remember, you don’t need to have a referral from your veterinarian to make an appointment or to utilize our emergency services.

If possible, you should bring the following information with you to any appointment:

  • Pertinent radiographs, lab work, and medical history
  • Any special instructions involving food, care, or medications
  • If you have been referred by your veterinarian, bring your Referral Information Form

Our number is 515-294-4900 and is staffed 24/7.

Another helpful hint, the GPS to 1809 S Riverside to the hospital entrance isn’t always reliable. Be sure to use Entrance A off of 16th Street to access the Hixson-Lied Small Animal Hospital.
