When your pet gets sick at an odd hour and the veterinary office doesn’t open until Monday morning, what do you do?
You may take him to the Triangle Pet Emergency Treatment Service in Durham and Orange counties. Its a 24-hour pet clinic helps vets and animals (clinic is open from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. during the week, and 24 hours a day on weekends and holidays).
Last year, animals made between 4,000 and 5,000 visits to the Durham clinic.
A group of about 20 local veterinarians got together in the 1980s to form the emergency clinic.
