Overnight Care

The team at VSCP is committed to providing the highest quality care for your pet.  Our patients are monitored by a skilled nursing team 24 hours a day.  When our doors close at 5:30pm and the surgical team goes home, the swing and overnight crew devote their entire shifts to care for a small number of recovering patients.  Dinner and pain medications are given, the lights are dimmed, and everyone talks in a whisper.  Sleeping is an important part of the healing process.  The phones are left on and you are welcome to call and check on your furry friend throughout the night.


VSCP closes at 2pm on Saturday and reopens at 7:30am Monday.  If you have a non-urgent question please email your surgeon at one of the following addresses:

  • Dr. Amelia Simpson ~
  • Dr. Timothy Munjar ~ 


Many general practice veterinary hospitals are open on the weekends.  If your regular veterinary hospital is open, we recommend calling them with any concerns.  If they are not open we recommend that you seek attention at an emergency hospital.  There are six emergency hospitals in the Portland/Vancouver Metro Area.
