Handling Pet Emergencies
Paoli Vetcare is here when your pets have sudden traumatic emergencies. Please bring your pet in to see us if they are dealing with any of the following:
- Accident or trauma, especially if they were hit by a vehicle
- Breathing difficulties
- Chronic illness complications
- Food complications
- Ingestion of a foreign object
- Broken limbs
- Eye injury
- Allergic reactions
- Sudden loss of consciousness
We handle any emergency condition, and our knowledgeable and caring staff is here to make sure that your pets receive the most quality care possible. We will keep you informed and updated every step of the way, especially if you have to do a pet drop-off. Since Paoli Vetcare has only the utmost respect for the bond between pet and owner, we treat every single case with the same level of compassion and urgency.
While we do prefer the call-ahead, we know that emergencies do not always dictate decorum. Don’t panic over making an appointment in the case of a serious emergency—we are here for you and your pet, and we want to make sure they receive the care they need as quickly as possible.
We cover a wide range of services, and while not every serious situation is an emergency, we welcome calls and appointments that cover the special services your pet needs, such as emergency medicine, critical oral care and surgery, medication refills, surgery, and more.
