What To Do In A Pet Emergency

If you are experiencing a veterinary emergency, follow the steps below.

  • If Possible, Call Ahead - During regular business hours please call us immediately. After hours, call the emergency animal hospitals listed above to let them know you are en route.
  • Follow Provided Instructions - When you call to inform the emergency pet hospital that you are on your way, they may provide instructions to help you apply first aid or otherwise make your pet as comfortable as possible. Follow these instructions carefully.
  • Stay Calm - Remain calm and be extra careful around your pet. When an animal is in pain, they often react negatively towards anyone trying to touch them, and could bite or scratch in self defense.
  • Bring Your Pet In For Vet Care - Don't put yourself or your pet at risk! Safely bring your pet to our Brodheadsville veterinary clinic or the after-hours emergency veterinary hospital locations above.

  • Do I have to call ahead?

    Brodheadsville Veterinary Clinic provides emergency and urgent veterinary care for cats and dogs during our regular clinic hours. We highly recommend contacting us in advance, but we understand that in emergency situations that's not always possible. 

    If we cannot fit your pet into our schedule, we recommend that you visit the after-hours emergency vet locations shown above.

  • What situations need emergency vet care?

    The following situations are examples of emergencies that require immediate care:

    • Severe bleeding or continuous bleeding
    • Obvious signs of pain or extreme anxiety
    • Choking, difficulty breathing, or continuous coughing/gagging
    • Fractured bones or severe difficulty walking (lameness)
    • Seizures and/or staggering
    • Bleeding from nose, mouth, rectum, or blood in the urine
    • Inability to urinate or defecate, or pain associated with urinating or passing feces
    • Severe vomiting or diarrhea (more than 2 bouts in 24 hours)
    • Injuries to the eye(s)
    • Your pet ingested something poisonous (e.g. antifreeze, xylitol, chocolate, rodent poison, etc.)
    • Heat stress or heatstroke
    • Refusal to drink for 24 hours or more
    • Unconsciousness
  • How long do we have to wait to see the vet?

    Our Brodheadsville animal hospital is similar to a doctor's office—the length of your wait can be unpredictable depending on several unforeseen factors (e.g. number of patients, the nature of your pet's emergency). 

    We cannot predict what cases we will see and when they will arrive, so if possible, call ahead to find out whether we are able to provide emergency care for your dog or cat.

    If we are unable to schedule an emergency appointment, we recommend that you visit one of the 24/7 animal emergency hospitals detailed above. 

  • What happens if my pet needs to stay in the hospital?

    Some veterinary emergencies require intensive overnight care and monitoring. At Brodheadsville Veterinary Clinic we provide overnight care for animals in need.

    While in our care, our dedicated team will treat your pet as if they were our own.

  • What types of animals do you treat?

    Our emergency veterinarians are mostly experienced with cats and dogs, but will see other small animals in serious situations. Please get in touch for more information.
