24 Hour Emergency Vet Care Locations

No one ever expects to have to bring their pet to an emergency clinic, but if your pet is injured, sick or in an accident, it’s important to know where to go in an emergency at any time of the day.

HOW DO I KNOW IF IT’S AN EMERGENCY? The easiest answer as to whether you should seek emergency veterinary care for a pet is when you feel his or her medical condition is serious and cannot wait. However, the following general situations should help you determine if you need to seek out emergency care for your pet:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Acute abdominal swelling
  • Electric shock
  • Excessive vomiting or diarrhea
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Exhibits symptoms of heat stroke or hypothermia
  • Repetitive and prolonged seizures
  • High or low temperature (more than 104 or less than 100 degrees)
  • Unable to urinate or defecate
