How to handle an emergency situation

If your pet has ingested a toxic substance, please call poison control on your way to your nearest vet. There is typically a fee for this, but many times we cannot proceed without a case report from poison control toxicologists to let us know what to do. PLEASE WRITE DOWN YOUR CASE NUMBER. 

24/7 Animal Poison Control Center (855) 764-7661

ASPCA Poison Control (888) 426-4435


If your pet is having another kind of emergency, please give us a call to let us know what is going on. We can advise you what to do from there. For certain situations, we recommend going straight to an emergency facility if we think the pet may need overnight care or monitoring. If it is your first time here, please make sure to bring any previous records you have with you.  If the pet is having diarrhea, bring a poop sample. If the pet is having urinary issues, bring a urine sample.
