Recognizing a pet emergency is not always easy. If ever you are unsure, please call us at (479) 251-8387 so we can assess the situation over the phone. There are, however, several instances where you can be sure you need emergency pet care. These include:

  • Choking or difficulty breathing
  • Blunt force trauma, such as being hit by a car
  • Excessive vomiting or diarrhea
  • Blood in urine, stool, or vomit
  • Seizures
  • Disorientation
  • Signs of extreme pain (whining, crying, wincing when touched, etc.)
  • Ingestion of a toxic substance: Pet Poison Helpline: (855) 764-7661
  • Unconsciousness
  • Significant change in body temperature

If possible, please contact us before you bring your pet in, so we can be ready to receive you.
