Should I Call An Emergency Vet?

Many people admittedly make a habit of talking to their pets, even when their dog or cat can't exactly talk back.

One of those times you might wish for your pet to tell you what's wrong is when they're suffering from a physical ailment. It's during these times that pet owners often question whether a wait-and-see approach is best or end up asking themselves, "Should I call an emergency vet?"

At East Valley Emergency Pet Clinic in Diamond Bar, CA, we believe any major concern about your pet's health warrants a call to your emergency veterinarian. Once you pick up the phone, we can help you make the best decision about what to do next. More importantly, our staff members are here to help in those off hours when your regular veterinarian is unavailable.

What Constitutes a Pet Emergency?

Take a moment and think about how well you know about your pet. If they're showing obvious signs that something isn't right, such as abnormal anxiety or signs of pain or injury, your instincts have kicked in for a reason. In these instances -- and many others -- your pet likely requires an immediate consultation.

That's why the East Valley Emergency Pet Clinic provides services weeknights, weekends and all major holidays.

Be Prepared When Calling Your Emergency Veterinarian

If you find yourself needing to make a phone call during a pet emergency, you should be prepared with the same information a 9-1-1 operator would ask for if the emergency involved a human. We'll want to know:

  • Your pet's age and exact symptoms, including exactly when they started.
  • If your pet is injured, what happened?
  • When and where did the injury happen?
