When to Seek an Emergency Veterinarian for Your Pet
The easiest answer is when you feel his or her medical condition is serious and cannot wait. However, the following general list of conditions can help you determine if you need to seek emergency care for your pet:
- Difficulty breathing
- Acute abdominal swelling
- Electric shock
- Excessive vomiting or diarrhea
- Exhibits symptoms of heat stroke
- Sudden onset of weakness
- High or low temperature (more than 104 or less than 100 degrees)
- Unable to urinate or defecate
During office hours, we are fully equipped and ready to help with all of your emergency and critical care needs. If you find that you need emergency assistance after hours, we recommend Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Hospital of Wichita. They are available when we are closed and we trust them for quality care! In the event you have to visit the emergency clinic we can get the records so we can follow up if your pet needs further care.
For your convenience, we have provided the contact and website information for both after hours locations here.
