Steps to Take In A Pet Emergency

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

  • Call Ahead If Possible - During our regular business hours, call us immediately. After hours, if you are already a client, call us ahead of time so our on-call staff knows you are coming. If you are not already a client of ours but need after-hours medical care, contact the emergency hospital listed above.
  • Follow Instructions Provided - When you call to notify us or an emergency veterinary hospital of your arrival, you may be given instructions on how to administer first aid or otherwise make your pet as comfortable as possible. Take care to follow these instructions.
  • Remain Calm - Make sure you remain calm and exercise extra caution around your pet when they are experiencing an emergency. When animals are in pain, they may react negatively to people who are only trying to help.
  • Bring Your Pet In For Care - Take care not to endanger yourself! Bring your pet to our Oak Grove veterinary clinic or the above after-hours emergency veterinarian location in a safe manner.
