Unfortunately, medical emergencies in pets can occur at any time, which is why having a veterinarian you can trust for emergency and extended care in the Edmonton area is a must. At Edmonton South Animal Hospital, we're happy to provide emergency care for your pet, regardless of the specific situation. Simply give our office a call and follow the prompts in the event of an emergency and we will work with you to provide your pet with the care and treatment that is needed.
And in the event that your pet needs an emergency surgery or any other procedure that requires him or her to be monitored before heading back home, we also provide extended care here in our office. This way, you can enjoy the added peace of mind in knowing that your pet is being carefully monitored and checked on to ensure that he or she is recovering properly before being released back to you. Of course, you are welcome to visit your pet while he or she is recovering in our care. We find that this helps to relieve stress and make pets feel more comfortable, so we even encourage it.
There are many potential emergency situations in which it may be necessary to bring your pet into to see our Edmonton veterinarian. One of the more common emergencies we tend to see is a pet that has ingested something it shouldn't have, resulting in vomiting, diarrhea, and other stomach/digestive problems. If your pet has a lack of appetite or is showing these symptoms, it's important to bring him or her into our hospital as soon as possible. Even if you don't think your pet ingested something it shouldn't have, it's better to be safe than sorry. Many household plants and everyday foods can be toxic to pets.
Another emergency we see often in our office is that of broken or fractured bones, which can occur as a result of a car or other accident. If this occurs, getting your pet emergency care right away is a must in improving chances of successful treatment and recovery.
If your pet is facing any kind of veterinary emergency, please be sure to call Edmonton South Animal Hospital as soon as possible at 780.989.5595. Every second counts when your pet is suffering. Our team will do its best to provide the proper care and prompt treatment that your pet needs.
