Emergencies do not always happen during “normal business hours.” Our emergency hours are 24/7 at both of our locations. We are staffed by highly skilled professionals with access to our state-of-the-art tools at all times. Our team operates the same way as any hospital: our goal is to assess, stabilize, diagnose and treat our patients. We understand how emotional an emergency situation can become and take great care in working quickly and compassionately to treat an emergency case. If you suspect an emergency situation do not delay. Contact us and allow our team to guide you in these next critical steps.
When dealing with an emergency situation, remember to:
- Contact VSC to describe the problem, if possible. This also allows our team to be ready for your case upon arrival.
- Be safe. Pets or wildlife in distress may act aggressively. For your protection we may recommend that you wrap your pet’s head in a cloth or towel to restrain his mouth and help keep him calm. Always remember to keep his airway open while doing so.
