Emergency Pet Services
When your pet is sick or injured, you do not have the luxury of waiting for your regular veterinarian to get back in the office.? Just like people, animals can suffer from illnesses or injuries that simply cannot wait for “normal business hours” to roll around.? That’s why our animal emergency room was created ? to provide emergency and urgent care services for your pet, no matter what time it is.? We can help your pet after hours and on weekends.
An emergency can strike your pet in a variety of ways.? Perhaps your cat got bitten by a snake.? Or, maybe your ferret won’t stop vomiting.? Or, maybe your bird collapsed.? Or, maybe your puppy decided to eat his weight in chocolate.? No matter what the problem is, we offer full emergency and urgent care services ? just like a human emergency room.
What kind of animals can we treat?
From puppies, to elderly cats, to hamsters, to everything in between ? our experienced team of veterinarians can provide emergency services for a variety of animals, including:
- Other pocket pets
How do our emergency services work?
Obviously, you do not need an appointment to come in. But it is very helpful if you call us prior to your arrival so that we can be best prepared for your situation and give you directions.? However, this is not mandatory. Just like a human emergency room, we see the animals that are in the most severe condition first, so we ask that you be patient if you have to wait.
We do not perform any routine procedures ? like vaccinations or de-worming ? in order to keep our facilities and doctors open and available for emergency cases.
When you first arrive, you will be asked to fill out paperwork that is similar to what you would fill out if you were taking a friend or family member to a human emergency room.? By asking for things like a basic medical history, any allergies your pet suffers from, and a list of your pet’s current medications, that paperwork will be used to help diagnose and treat your pet.? Then, once your pet is discharged, all of the paperwork will be sent to your regular veterinarian so that it can become a part of your pet’s permanent health records.
No matter what the emergency, you can count on us to help you through it.? At 4:00 A.M. on Christmas morning, your regular veterinarian will not be available.? We will be.
