Any of the following situations can be considered an emergency:
If you are concerned about your pet at any time, please contact us. We are happy to counsel you on the best course of action.
While an emergency is unfolding, or throughout recovery from a serious illness or accident, ongoing diagnostic and therapeutic care and constant monitoring of your pet's condition are required. Many emergency and critical care facilities offer 24-hour supervision of critically ill pets.
Many emergency hospitals work on a referral basis with general practitioners. In some cases, your pet will only be referred to the emergency service for after-hours care. In other cases, your pet may be in the care of the emergency hospital for the duration of the emergency and recovery, but then referred back to your general practitioner veterinarian for follow up and routine care.
