Critical Care

 

Do you know who to call in the event of a pet emergency?

As a loving pet parent, you never want to see your four-legged family member in distress. Unfortunately, unexpected illnesses and sudden accidents can occur at any time. The way you handle these types of situations can make all the difference in the world for your loved one. At Cedar Veterinary Clinic, we want you to know that you’ve got a dedicated team in your corner. You can rest easy knowing that we’ll be there for you in your time of need.

Our hospital is equipped to provide life-saving critical care at a moment’s notice. With staff members who are experienced in emergency medicine, we can quickly diagnose the problem and deliver the most timely and effective care. Most importantly, we will handle your companion’s case with the utmost compassion, doing everything within our power to achieve a positive outcome.

Some of the signs that your pet may require urgent medical attention include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Ingestion of a foreign object or toxic substance
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts, lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Vomiting or diarrhea lasting longer than 24 hours
  • Bleeding
  • Trauma, such as a fall or being hit by a car
  • Swollen or tender abdomen
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Lameness
  • Disorientation
  • Foaming at the mouth
  • Convulsions/seizures
  • Loss of consciousness

 

If you notice your companion exhibiting any of these signs, it’s time to call for help right away. At Cedar Veterinary Clinic, we always recommend calling ahead when an emergency occurs. This allows us to evaluate the situation and provide first aid instructions over the phone. It also lets us prepare the hospital and other team members for your pet’s arrival. Of course, should the nature of your pet’s emergency not allow time for a phone call, don’t hesitate to come directly in for immediate attention.

We sincerely hope you never experience the need for urgent veterinary care. If you do, however, we want you to know who to call. The team at Cedar Veterinary Clinic will be here to provide the highest level of care available. You can count on us!

    They were good to get my sick kitty in ASAP. Everyone there is caring and takes the time to explain things to you. They also treat the animals the way I treat my animals with love and respect for their anxiety and pain or illness. They do not do a cursory exam and then hurry to get you out of there so they can get on to the next patient. The office is clean and welcoming.

    Heather is absolutely fantastic! My lab (Hope) was very sick with a uterine infection which was killing her this past winter. Hope's 8 years old (considered too old by some to risk operating on). However, Heather immediately recommended operating to save Hope's life. There was NO hesitation and she took care of Hope that very day! Heather and staff stayed late that evening to look after Hope's needs. Knowing how worried I was about my girl, Heather contacted me to let me know how Hope was doing. My pup has since recovered and is like a new dog - rejuvenated, happy and healthy! I can't say enough good about the skill, dedication and compassion of this clinic and all their staff! Thank you for your hard work and determination!
