Animal Emergency Care Services
While a pet emergency is probably the last thing you want to think about, it's important to be prepared. Our animal hospital in Houston is always ready to provide emergency care during our regular office hours, because we know how unpredictable (and stressful) these situations can be.
The following behaviors and symptoms can indicate a medical emergency:
- Difficulty breathing
- Stumbling/collapse/inability to stand or walk
- Severe bleeding (does not stop within 5 minutes)
- Elevated temperature/heat stroke
- Inability to urinate or defecate/experiences pain while trying to urinate or defecate
- Injuries to the eye(s)
- Ingestion of toxic substance such as food, plant matter or chemicals
- Chronic vomiting/diarrhea
- Possible broken bones or other traumatic injury
- Loss of consciousness
If Your Pet is Having an After-Hours Emergency
Since our hospital is not open 24 hours a day, we recommend that all after-hours emergencies go to either Gulf Coast Emergency Hospital or Sugar Land Veterinary Specialist & Emergency Center. You can see their contact information below.
