Emergency Services

Emergency care begins with your call to the veterinarian. Be prepared to describe the emergency situation. Your veterinarian may instruct you on how to administer first aid and how to safely transport your pet. You may be able to identify life?threatening airway, breathing, and circulation problems with the help of a veterinary professional on the telephone. Follow instructions given for immediate treatment and transport. Calling ahead also gives the veterinary staff time to prepare for your arrival.

Some emergencies requiring immediate veterinary care include:

  • Poisoning
  • Severe pain
  • Severe or uncontrolled bleeding
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Eye injuries
  • Suspected bone fractures or inability to move a limb
