Pet Urgent/Emergency Care

Pet Urgent and Emergency Care

As a pet owner, one of the easiest ways to avoid any surprises is to take your dog or cat to the veterinarian for an annual checkup. These yearly or biannual visits are one way to make sure your pet stays healthy, and that you have the information you need to keep them that way.

Unfortunately, annual checkups don't always prevent the need for urgent or emergency care down the road.

When that time comes, the veterinary staff here at Sante Fe Animal Hospital works fast and efficiently so an owner can make a decision about what comes next.

Pet Urgent and Emergency Care

Reasons Your Pet May Need Emergency Care

We've all heard the saying " accidents happen." But when a medical emergency occurs, it's hard to make decisions at the moment. Luckily, a veterinarian that provides trauma and emergency care should at least offer peace of mind that your pet will be well taken care of. Here at Sante Fe Animal Hospital, we offer full surgical services and other treatments and accept emergency cases during our clinic's regular office hours.

Your pet may end up needing emergency care because of injuries caused by an accident or another incident, such as heatstroke, vomiting and diarrhea, bloat, choking, insect stings, poisoning, and more.

If your pet is injured and has damage to a bone, joint, or tendon, surgery will likely be necessary to treat the injury. Infections, such as skin lesions and abscess removals are also commonly seen by our veterinarians.
