At Town & Country Veterinary Clinic, we understand that a pet emergency can be a frightening time for pet owners. Our emergency services are a caring extension of your family or referral veterinarian. Our veterinarians have a special interest in emergency medicine and will ensure that your pet receives the highest quality of appropriate and necessary medical treatment. We have the skills and capabilities to provide pet emergency care at our animal hospital 24-hours a day.
Emergency care can be costly because of the high-level facility and professional staff requirements. We tailor treatment protocols to fit your resources and special needs, providing the optimum course of therapy to fit your pet’s situation. You are encouraged to discuss any fees and treatment options with our professional staff. We routinely assist in and accept applications for CareCredit.
Following an emergency or critical care at our facility, we will provide your family veterinarian with medical records and information about your pet’s condition so your veterinarian can provide appropriate follow-up care and treatment. If your pet is not an established patient at another veterinary facility, our hospital welcomes new clients and patients and would be happy to discuss routine and preventative care with you.
What to Do in Case of a Pet Emergency
If you’re experiencing a pet emergency, we recommend bringing your pet to our animal hospital to be examined by our emergency veterinarians. If able, you may call in advance to discuss your pet’s condition with our team, but we will also accept walk-ins for pet emergencies.
Exotics and birds may also be seen on an emergency basis; however, if these pets need extensive or specialized care they will be referred to an exotic veterinarian in the area.
We provide emergency treatment for a wide range of cases at our animal hospital. Some reasons to seek emergency care can include:
- Bite wounds and lacerations
- Choke or airway obstruction
- Complications from an existing disease
- Diarrhea or Vomiting
- Foreign objection ingestion
- Intensive or critical care
- Pet poisoning
- Refusal to eat or drink for more than 24 hours
- Trauma, such as being hit by a car
When you bring your pet to our hospital for emergency care, you can expect our doctors to listen to your concerns, communicate with you about your pet’s condition, and work together as a team to ensure that your pet’s needs are met.
Please contact us immediately if you are experiencing a pet emergency and need assistance. Help is just a phone call away!
