After Business Hours
If you’re experiencing a pet emergency outside of our normal business hours, please call these facilities ahead of time to be sure they can see your pet:
We accept emergency cases during regular business hours only, and emergencies will be given priority. If your pet is experiencing a crisis, please call us right away so that our team can be as prepared as possible for your arrival.
What Are Some Signs of an Emergency?
- Difficulty breathing
- Bleeding that doesn’t stop
- Bleeding from the eyes, nose, or mouth, or blood in urine or feces
- Hives and/or swelling
- Ingestion of poison/toxin
- Uncontrolled vomiting or diarrhea
- Bloating (hard/distended abdomen)
- Symptoms of heatstroke
- Your pregnant dog or cat has gone more than three hours between delivering their babies
- Sudden disorientation/unsteadiness
- Signs of extreme pain, such as whining, shaking, and refusing to socialize
- Difficult elimination
You are closer to your pet than anyone, which means you know them best. If your pet is behaving unusually, or if something doesn’t seem right, it may be a sign of a problem. To find out, we would recommend calling our emergency team. A vet can ask you a few questions over the phone, and tell you whether you should bring your pet in right away, or whether you can wait. If you find out there’s no real problem, your mind will be put at ease.
