Appointments

At Desert Dunes Animal Hospital, we are committed to giving quality veterinary care. Please see the type of appointments that we offer to help you in scheduling the appropriate appointment for your pets.

EMERGENCIES: We accommodate emergency appointments during normal business hours. Please call our office in advance of arriving, if possible. After regular business hours and on holidays if you have a pet emergency between the hours of 6:00 pm and 10:00 pm our on-call emergency veterinary technician can be reached @ (442) 400-0197. If this is a pet emergency after 10:00 pm please call VCA Valley Animal Medical Center Emergency Hospital @ (760) 342-4711 located at 46920 Jefferson Street, Indio, CA 92201

SCHEDULED APPOINTMENTS: Scheduled appointments provide a set time of day to see the doctor. Scheduled appointments will be given priority over walk-in urgent care appointments unless an emergency is present. To schedule an appointment please call our hospital @ (760) 345-8227.

WALK-IN URGENT CARE: We understand that when a pet gets sick, making an appointment is not always possible. Please call our office in advance of arriving and we will give you the next available time-slot in-between appointments that may have been scheduled. Please understand that there will be a wait to see the doctor and that this is a time-slot (not an appointment) in order to help the flow of urgent care needs we see daily.

VETERINARY TECHNICIAN TREATMENTS: Are your pet’s nails too long, has your pet been scooting their back end on the floor or is there wax build-up in their ears? These are all types of treatments that can be done with a technician to help you keep your pet healthy without needing to make an appointment with a veterinarian. Technician treatments include but are not limited to toenail trims, anal gland expressions, and even ear cleanings. Technician treatments may walk-in throughout our regular business hours to have the technician perform the above-mentioned treatments and are on a first come first serve basis. Please call our hospital @ (760) 345-8227 if you have any questions.

“We appreciate you entrusting us with the care of your fur kids
and look forward to taking care of their needs.”
