Emergency Care

Pet health problems may be minor or severe, and can occur at any time, and we will always respond to your pet’s health needs in the best ways possible. Emergencies can take many forms, including traumatic injuries, toxin exposure, and sudden illnesses, any of which may cause pain, disability, or life-threatening problems.  If you are concerned that your pet is having an emergency medical need and you’re located in the Rock Hill, Fort Mill, Tega Cay, Baxter or York area, please call our office as soon as possible so that we can prepare and provide the appropriate care.

During regular office hours, our team is ready to respond at a moment’s notice to provide comprehensive emergency care in our office, with oxygen and fluid support, emergency drug therapies, and surgery if needed. We work together with you to fully understand your pet’s needs and recommend the best course of action.

After hours, we are available through our answering service to provide the best consultation services that we can by  helping ‘troubleshoot” the problem and make the best recommendations possible.  Please call our office and the answering service will contact the doctor on call.  We will call you to help “troubleshoot” the problem and provide our best recommendations.  In many cases we can assess the pet’s needs and offer help that will resolve or mitigate the problem over the phone.  If true emergency after hours-treatment is necessary, we utilize the Emergency Vets of the Carolina Veterinary Specialists Emergency Service, which maintains the 24/7 staff and facilities to meet the ‘round the clock intensive care that many emergency situations require.  They can  be contacted directly at 803-909-8300.
