The articles listed in this section are for informational purposes only and are not meant to be inclusive of all possible emergencies.
If you believe your pet is experiencing a medical emergency, please call one of our hospitals and speak directly with a call center liaison. Liaisons are trained to help recognize medical emergencies and are on staff at our hospitals 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
Remember, many emergencies are time-sensitive and, in some cases, treatment outcomes can directly correlate with the urgency in which care is sought.
