We are proud to offer technologically advanced digital X-rays, laser surgery, and onsite lab diagnostics, which allow us to rapidly respond to a medical emergency and achieve the best possible outcome for your pet.
If your pet receives emergency medical treatment from another emergency hospital, please let us know. We are committed to keeping your pet healthy, and post-emergency follow-up care can be performed by our office regardless of the emergency hospital used to treat the trauma. We will collect the medical records from the emergency hospital for you, so we can keep a complete medical history for your pet.
Signs of a Potential Emergency
Animals have a natural tendency to hide their injuries and acute illness. Seeking immediate medical attention if you suspect an injury provides your pet with the best opportunity to have a positive outcome from their trauma. Delays in seeking medical attention can result in life-threatening consequences or death. It is strongly recommended that you seek emergency care if your pet is experiencing any of the following:
- Accident or injury—Hit by a vehicle, a physical confrontation with another animal, or a great fall
- Bleeding—From an injury or in the urine or feces
- Poisoning or ingestion—Chewed or swallowed a hazardous chemical, plant, chocolates, medication or foreign object (i.e., toys, keys, rocks, etc.)
- Diarrhea/vomiting—Repeated or severe diarrhea or vomiting
- Respiratory difficulties—Repeated coughing, shallow or laboured breathing, or choking
- Behavioural changes—Pacing, aggression, whimpering, sleep changes, or withdrawal from normal activities
- Dietary changes—Loss of appetite or increased urination
