What To Do if You Have an Emergency or Your Pet Needs Critical Care
Emergencies are an unfortunate part of life. We take steps to keep our pets safe but sometimes accidents still happen. Its best to know exactly what you would do in case of an emergency long before an actual emergency happens.
We can handle all emergencies at our hospital until 6pm. If there is an emergency after 6 p.m., please call us and we will be happy to direct you to an emergency animal hospital for small animals, or we will page the on-call large animal practitioner to assist your pet.
By calling ahead we will be able to advise you on the best options for transporting your pet, and our staff will be able to make preparations for your arrival based on the emergency your pet is experiencing.
Our veterinarians here at Travelers Rest will stay in touch with the emergency hospital and receive updates on your pet in order to monitor their condition. When your pet is released from the emergency hospital our doctors will take over their care and will be responsible for all follow up care and pain management.
If your pet is stable enough to be released from the emergency hospital, but still requires hospitalization, our hospital and doctors will care for and monitor your pet closely until he or she recovers sufficiently to return home.
Trust and confidence in your veterinarian and their staff is critical at such a stressful time. We know that you are worried, frightened and sad that your pet’s life may be in jeopardy. We understand your feelings and we will always treat you, your family and your pet with compassion, understanding, and respect.
