Emergencies are stressful! They are stressful for the pet. They are stressful for the owner.
Thankfully our staff at both our practices are fully trained and practiced in handling all manner of emergencies. Whether it be a cat that has been hit by a car or a dog that has been bitten by a venomous snake our staff have the necessary qualifications and equipment on hand to deal with it.
All animals that present as an emergency are seen immediately. In some cases, a veterinary nurse may triage the pet to determine the severity of the problem, determine if a veterinarian is needed immediately and treatment commenced if deemed necessary.
When faced with an emergency it is always best to contact us before coming or do so en route. We can advise you of anything you can do to help and we can get things prepared at our end for you and your pet’s arrival so treatment can be started as soon as possible.
