Emergency Care

Our hospital offers emergency care. If you suspect your pet may be having a medical crisis, err on the side of caution and seek medical attention immediately. Our experienced team of veterinarians, technicians and assistants are here to assist your pet when it is needed most.

Difficulty breathing
Ingestion of a foreign object, drug, poison or unknown substance*
Bleeding or unexplained bruising
Blood in vomit, feces, and/or urine
Severe vomiting, retching, and/or diarrhea
Swollen, hard, or painful abdomen or unproductive retching
Serious wound
Broken limb(s)
Any injury to the eyes
Loss of consciousness
Seizures
Inability to move or sudden weakness
Unusual or erratic behavior
Signs of extreme pain

Snake bite
Trauma (hit by car, fall)
Allergic reaction (facial swelling, difficulty breathing)
Any signs of respiratory difficulty (increased respiratory effort, coughing, wheezing)

By calling ahead, the hospital’s emergency team may also be able to give helpful advice for your pet, including techniques for controlling bleeding, covering and protecting wounds, slowly cooling a heatstroke victim and safely transporting an injured animal.
