Emergency Clinic The Hague

In case of emergencies

For emergencies or other cases that cannot wait, you can visit Dierenkliniek Het Zicht in The Hague during walk-in consultations, also on Saturdays and Sundays. Outside our opening hours, please contact Evidensia Dierenziekenhuis Den Haag (route) immediately for emergencies via 070 - 206 09 00. You will be assisted by an experienced emergency vet, who will make a quick and accurate diagnosis and can start treatment immediately, so that no valuable time is lost.

When to go to the emergency vet?

It can be difficult to determine when your pet needs immediate help. However, it is vitally important to make the right decision. Please contact us immediately if your animal shows one or more of the symptoms from our list of emergency signs. For other cases where you are in a hurry, you are also welcome during the walk-in consultations on Saturday or Sunday.

Cost of emergency care

The costs for emergency treatment outside regular opening hours are higher than the normal rates. In addition, in the case of emergency care it is difficult to estimate which treatment should take place and how high the costs will be. However, we will always give you an estimate of the costs and inform you if unexpected additional treatments may result in higher costs.

Vet on the weekend

Sometimes it is not an emergency, but it is urgent. It is not always necessary to call the emergency vet. However, we do understand that you prefer not to wait too long with your animal. The safety and health of your pet is our top priority. That is why you are most welcome at the weekend at Dierenkliniek Het Zicht. During our walk-in consultations on Saturdays and Sundays, we are happy to help you with cases that cannot wait.

Symptoms of emergencies in birds

Birds don't show it easily when they are sick. In nature, this means that they fall prey to predators more quickly. Once you notice something wrong with your bird, it is often quite serious. Contact the emergency vet or the bird doctor immediately if your bird shows one or more of the symptoms below.

  • Puffed-up feathers
  • Eating more or less than usual
  • Lack of energy (no talking/not making any sounds, no playing, sleeping a lot)
