What to do in an emergency

Accidents and health emergencies can happen at any time, and our experienced team is ready to help if the unexpected happens to your pet. Emergencies are always given first priority at our vet hospital. If possible, please call ahead so that we can prepare for your pet's arrival. 

Even with the best care and attention, accidents and health emergencies can happen. These include:

  • Car accidents
  • Poisoning- If you suspect your pet has eaten something that might be poisonous, please bring in the packaging or container to help us administer the right antidote
  • Collapses or seizures
  • Severe vomiting or diarrhoea (more than two episodes in the past twelve hours, or if it is combined with any of these other symptoms, or any other obvious illness)
  • Choking or difficulty breathing
  • Difficulty going to the toilet (urinating, or passing stools)
  • If your pet appears to be in pain, or seems anxious

 

If you are concerned about your pet's health, or have an emergency, please call us, or your local Vet immediately. If you aren't able to contact us, please ring a 24-hour veterinary emergency hospital.
