When Your Pet Needs Emergency Care

There are numerous situations in which a pet needs care immediately. In these situations, we ask that you immediately contact our team at (316) 788-1561 to schedule an appointment or so we can give you specific direction on what to do right now for your pet.

We have a veterinarian available 6 days a week who can handle any emergency or urgent need your pet has. This may include poisoning, being hit by a car, or seizures.

Emergency situations are those in which the pet needs immediate care such as because of symptoms such as:

  • Not responsive
  • Not breathing
  • Bleeding
  • Seizures

Urgent situations are those in which the pet needs help soon. In these situations, your pet is ill but not necessarily facing a life-threatening condition. Symptoms may include:

  • The pet isn’t eating or drinking.
  • The animal is throwing up.
  • The pet isn’t acting normal in some other way.
  • The pet has a potential broken bone.

In any of these situations, we recommend bringing your pet in to see us. We’ll provide your animal with a full exam and handle any diagnostics necessary. From there, we’ll determine if your pet needs additional care.

Comprehensive Pet Emergency Surgery Is Available

Our team has a number of veterinarians available to help with your pet’s immediate needs. Our pet surgeons will determine when surgery is necessary and when it needs to occur to protect your animal’s life. We may recommend this for situations such as:

  • Open wounds with high infection rates
  • Birthing that stalls or endangers the mother
  • Broken bones or other trauma requiring immediate help
  • Lacerations or damage to internal tissues or organs
  • Biopsies

It is nearly always our goal to avoid surgery unless your pet’s health is at risk. Keep in mind your pet will be working with highly skilled professionals dedicated to their well-being. We offer years of experience and a strong local reputation for providing exceptional care.
