A medical emergency can present in various ways depending on what type of animal is experiencing distress and what the issue is that is causing the emergency situation. If you believe your pet is inherently unwell or injured for any reason, please do not hesitate to call. We can work with you to determine what could be potentially happening and most likely advise you to bring your animal into the office immediately if the matter seems potentially urgent or life-threatening. Treating emergencies as soon as symptoms begin to appear is your pet's best chance at recovery or at times, survival.
We understand that emergency situations can look or feel scary. It is a time of uncertainty and often distress. If a medical emergency occurs after hours, we at Mission Road Animal Hospital urge you not to wait and suggest that you contact either of the following references immediately. We trust their highly experienced medical team to take excellent care of our patients as if we were treating them ourselves.
