Do you have an emergency?
If you have an emergency, do not hesitate to seek care.
Emergencies can take many forms- injuries, illness, poisoning, trauma, or exacerbations of previous ailments (heart disease, cancer,etc).
If your pet is having difficulties, is bleeding, having difficulty breathing, etc, do not hesitate to seek care!
Injured animals can be very stressed:
They may react more aggressively than they normally would.
Take precautions to avoid injury to yourself:
- Place a soft muzzle on (use a belt, rope, ribbon, etc, to tie firmly around the muzzle area)
- Be sure the animal is in a carrier or wrapped in a blanket, etc.
- If it is during our normal hours, if possible please do call us first so we can be ready for you.
