If your pet is injured or gets ill when your regular veterinarian is unavailable, this constitutes a veterinary emergency. The following is a partial list of pet emergencies we provide services for at the Animal Emergency Clinic:
Owners will be instructed on aftercare prior to the discharge of their pet. Please follow discharge instructions carefully. Often you will be directed to follow up with your regular veterinarian for continued care. If you do not have a regular veterinarian, please consult with the receptionist about finding one that would best fit your needs.
No emergency room staff is available after closing so all pets that require continued hospitalization are discharged to the owner prior to closing for transport to their regular veterinarian. A complete and typed medical record, which includes all treatments, diagnostics results and interpretations of radiographs (X-rays), is faxed to your regular veterinarian prior to discharge of your pet so that they may be familiarized with the case if follow up care is needed. If radiographs (X-rays) were obtained, we will email a copy of them to your veterinarian so they can review them.
“Perhaps it is because cats do not live by human patterns, do not fit themselves into prescribed behavior, that they are so united to creative people.”
