Cats and dogs live active, curious lifestyles, and can often get themselves into trouble. There is a variety of unfortunate reasons why your pet may need emergency care from a trained professional, including an injury, the ingestion of something toxic, or a sudden allergic reaction. We are ready to accept any challenge you present to us, but first, you must notice signs and symptoms that indicate they need urgent attention.

Here are some signs that your pet may need emergency vet care:

  • Blunt force injury
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Labored breathing
  • Blood in urine, stool, or vomit
  • Disorientation or difficulty walking
  • Ear infection
  • Heatstroke
  • Unconsciousness
  • Suspected ingestion of a toxin or foreign body
  • Attack or significant injury by another animal


Our skilled veterinary team leverages in-house technology and seasoned techniques to provide accurate emergency services. We work hard to manage your pet’s discomfort and stabilize their condition before running effective and comprehensive tests that screen for diseases, check for abnormalities, and deliver a detailed diagnosis to you as the caring pet parent. This helps our team determine and recommend treatment options so you can make informed decisions about your pet’s health and well-being.

We understand that emergencies rarely happen on a convenient schedule. If you feel like your pet is experiencing an emergency, we recommend you contact our office immediately.
