Emergency Physical Exams
A serious, unexpected, and often dangerous situation requiring immediate action.
Easier said than recognized, right? Some animal health emergencies are obvious, while others are subtle leaving you to wonder what you should do. In these cases, it is best to remember that old saying, “Better safe than sorry.”
The truth of the matter is that no one knows your pet better than YOU! If you believe your pet is uncomfortable, sick, or injured, please don’t hesitate to bring him or her in for an evaluation and allow us to be their unspoken voice of reason.
