One thing that experts agree is that planning ahead can help ease the high cost and stress associated with
hiring an emergency pet care. When you have the time, it is possible to find emergency pet care in different
settings such as general practice and emergency practice with some operating only at night, on weekends or
even during holidays.
Why you need emergency pet care
There are various emergency cases that need to be referred to veterinary care services. Some of the
common cases include injuries as a result of auto accident, bites and lacerations, urinary blockages and
vomiting. There are emergencies that will be referred to a veterinarian which are as a result of a chronic
medical condition, sudden trauma or medical event. It is the duty of pet owners to decide whether their pets
need emergency care. However, there are some obvious signs that pet owners should be on the lookout for
such as the inability to use the bathroom, frequent vomiting, immobility, diarrhea, bleeding and seizures.

clinic for your animal friend. Many general practices will also offer emergency care but there are also some
dedicated animal clinics that specialize only in emergency care. The most important thing is for you to choose
an emergency veterinary care clinic that has been accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association.

will not need any specialized care so as to administer critical or emergency care, there are veterinarians who
pursue residency or internship programs to enable them get additional experience. This means that when
you visit an animal clinic, you will not necessarily be seeing a critical and emergency care expert.

necessary for you to consult a specialist if your pet requires critical care. You should bear in mind that most
critical care experts are there to ensure that your pet receives the best emergency treatment. Where there
will be need for follow-up care, it will be necessary for your provider to recommend other certified specialists
