Urgent & Emergency Issues

Urgent and emergency issues are scary for you and your pet - let us help both of you through those stressful times. Whatever the issue is, we will use our thorough, caring approach to partner with you so that together we can form the best strategy to move forward. Our veterinarians and staff are ready to provide top-notch care catered to you and your pet’s needs.

We are a full-service hospital, meaning we are able to handle most any situation, but please call ahead to ensure we have enough time to properly care for your pet.

We vow to always do our best to help those pets in need, but the demand for urgent and emergent veterinary services in our area is often more than any single practice can handle. If we cannot fit your pet into our schedule, it will never be for lack of trying. You and your pet’s health is our priority, and we will do our best to address emergencies as they arise. If your pet cannot be evaluated due to an increased demand in emergency cases that day, our staff will guide you through other options for emergency care.

An emergency can include severe bleeding that won’t stop, broken bones, seizures, injuries to the eyes, refusal to drink for more than 24 hours, your pet has ingested something poisonous, severe vomiting or diarrhea, difficulty breathing, any bleeding from nose, mouth, or rectum, and any clear signs of extreme pain.
