What To Do In A Pet Emergency

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

  • Call Ahead If Possible - During regular business hours call us right away. After hours, call the emergency animal hospital listed above to let them know you are on the way.
  • Follow Instructions Provided - When you call to let the emergency pet hospital know you are on your way, you may receive instructions to guide you through applying first aid or otherwise making your pet as comfortable as possible. Follow these instructions carefully.
  • Remain Calm - Stay calm and be cautious around your pet; when an animal is in pain, they can often react negatively towards anyone trying to help and could bite or scratch.
  • Visit Your Vet For Emergency Care - Don't put yourself or your pet at risk! Safely bring your pet to our Leighton veterinary clinic or the after-hours emergency vet location above.

  • What situations require emergency veterinary care?

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

    • Severe bleeding or bleeding that doesn't stop
    • Signs of pain or extreme anxiety
    • Choking, difficulty breathing, or continuous coughing/gagging
    • Fractured bones or severe lameness
    • Seizures and/or staggering

    • Signs of heat stress or heatstroke
    • Refusal to drink for 24 hours or more
    • Unconsciousness
  • How long will we have to wait to see the vet?

    Vet clinics are similar to a human doctor's office—it can be unpredictable and there might be a wait. 

    As we're not able to predict what cases we will see and when they will arrive, if possible we ask that you call ahead to find out whether we are able to provide emergency care for your animal.

    If we are unable to fit an emergency appointment into our vet's schedule we recommend that you visit 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. At All Animal Clinic we can provide overnight care for animals in need.

    Please get in touch to find out if we can accommodate your animal.

  • What types of animals do you treat?

    Our emergency veterinarians provide care to cats, dogs, exotic pets and birds, and larger animals and livestock such as horses and cattle, sheep, pigs, and goats.
