Types of Emergencies

When it comes to your pet’s health, it can sometimes be a challenge to know what counts as an emergency. To us, any of the following issues are emergencies:

  • Toxicity in any form (from eating chocolate to consuming poison).
    • Call the ASPCA Poison Control Hotline at (888) 426-4435 while on your way to us. Those few minutes are critical!
  • Car crash where your pet is injured
  • Respiratory problems where your pet is having difficulty breathing
  • Heart issues, known or unknown, where your pet might be having trouble walking or breathing
  • Dog fights, especially if there was blood
  • Bee stings or snake bites, which can often be poisonous

In our opinion, being proactive is the best course of action for your pet. If you have any suspicions or questions, call our hospital at (336) 946-3441 and we can help you decide what to do next.
