Reasons Your Pet May Need Emergency Care

When a medical emergency occurs, it’s hard to make decisions in the stress of the moment. A veterinarian that provides trauma and emergency care is experienced in handling these situations and can offer peace of mind that your pet will be in good hands. Here at Santa Fe Animal Hospital, we accept emergency cases during our clinic’s regular office hours and offer full surgical services and treatments.

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.

We Offer the Best in Emergency Pet Services

We know just how much your pet means to you and your family, and we want every patient to get the very best in an emergency or specialty care. Our team of skilled doctors provides advanced medical care in a number of areas. In addition, our hospital works hand-in-hand with specialist veterinarians to ensure we offer the best medical care to every patient.

When it comes to emergencies, don’t just take your pet anywhere. Santa Fe Animal Hospital is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA)–which means we have regularly passed on-site evaluations based on over 900 standards of veterinary care. We don’t just want to set the standard for a high level of care, we want to be the standard. With accreditation, you can rest easy knowing we are thorough, responsive, sanitary and safe.

If your pet needs emergency treatment, don’t hesitate to call us at (863) 665-5033!

We will be re-opening on Tuesday, March 1st!

Please note the updated process below:

  • One person per pet will be allowed in the building. We ask that you continue to check in by phone at (863) 665-5033 when you arrive for your pet’s appointment, then wait for a team member to come out and escort you and your pet into the building. 
  • We do request that you wear a mask when in the building.
  • Please social distance as best as possible when in the hospital. 
  • Our waiting room will be open with socially distanced seating. 
  • When in the waiting room, a staff member will discuss your pet’s history and take note of any issues you would like the doctor to examine.
  • Due to the exam rooms being small, a staff member will then escort your pet to the exam room, while you continue to wait in the waiting room. 
  • After the examination, you will be brought into the exam room to discuss the findings and treatment plan with the doctor. 
  • If you are sick, especially with flu-like symptoms, or have been in contact with anyone who tested positive for COVID-19, we do ask that you find a friend or family member to bring your pet to their appointment. 
  • Our curbside service will no longer be a required part of our COVID-19 protocol; however, if you prefer to take advantage of this service, just let us know when you arrive.
  • In order to reduce traffic flow inside the clinic, food and medicine pick up will still remain curbside.

We know this has been a long and trying year for everyone, and we sincerely appreciate how understanding our clients have been with the necessary restrictions and changes. 

Thank you for continuing to trust us with your pet’s health!
