Handling Emergencies

Our veterinary team is trained and equipped to handle a wide range of pet emergencies, including accidental ingestions, trauma from car accidents, and toxin exposures such as chocolate ingestion or ingestion of rat poison. We understand the urgency of these situations and encourage pet owners to contact us immediately if they suspect their pet requires emergency treatment.

Urgent Care Services

In addition to emergency care, we also offer urgent care services for situations that are not life-threatening but still require prompt attention. If your pet needs to be seen urgently, our veterinarians may be able to accommodate you with an “admit exam” or find a way to fit you in between scheduled appointments. We understand the importance of addressing your pet’s health concerns in a timely manner and strive to provide compassionate care when it’s needed most.

When to Seek Emergency Care

Knowing when to seek emergency care for your pet is essential for their well-being. Some signs that may indicate a pet emergency include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Severe injuries or trauma
  • Profuse bleeding
  • Sudden collapse or loss of consciousness
  • Seizures
  • Ingestion of toxic substances
  • Inability to urinate or defecate

If you notice any of these signs or suspect your pet is experiencing a medical emergency, don’t hesitate to contact us immediately.

After-Hours Emergency Resources

We understand that emergencies can occur outside of regular business hours. In such cases, we recommend seeking assistance from nearby emergency veterinary hospitals, such as the Kansas State University Veterinary Health Center in Manhattan, KS, or the Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Hospital of Wichita. Additionally, the Pet Poison Helpline is a valuable resource for pet owners dealing with toxin exposures and can guide handling the situation.
