How to Handle a Pet Emergency

Sometimes the unthinkable occurs, and your pet needs urgent veterinary care. Our Harrisburg emergency veterinarians want to offer some advice to those forced to handle such an obstacle.

Should you find yourself handling a pet emergency, here are a few pointers:

  • Take a Deep Breath. Try to remain calm and pay attention to signs of distress in your pet's unique circumstances.
  • Assess the Problem. Look for visible signs of injury and call your vet if urgent. Depending on the nature of your pet's situation, you may have some time to think about your next steps.
  • Is it Time to Get in the Car? If your pet is bleeding or has a broken bone, it is time to find an open emergency veterinarian. Every circumstance is different.
  • Call an Urgent Care for Pets Near You. Our Harrisburg emergency care service is available during regular business hours. However, we do list two alternative options for after-hours emergencies.
