While you certainly never want to envision your beloved animal family member facing the need for emergency veterinary care, it’s something that any responsible pet owner must be prepared for. The fact is, accidents happen and sudden, unexpected illnesses and injuries occur. It’s how we prepare ahead of time for these instances that can make all the difference to our animal friends.
As a responsible pet parent, the best thing you can do for your companion is know who to turn to in the event of an emergency. Animal Medical Center of Wyoming has you covered!
Our hospital is well equipped to handle even the most urgent medical, diagnostic or surgical care needs. Our staff is trained and experienced in emergency veterinary care and is prepared to step in and help at a moment’s notice. We will work swiftly and with great precision to get the situation under control and deliver whatever care is necessary to improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Critical care services are available any time while the clinic is open. We also have a doctor on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to handle any emergency situations that may occur outside of our normal office hours.
Some of the more common emergencies we can provide assistance with include, but are not limited to:
• Acute Pain
• Difficulty breathing
• Choking or coughing
• Ingestion of toxins or foreign object
• Vomiting and diarrhea lasting more than 24 hours or that contains blood
• Difficulty Urinating
• Cuts or lacerations
• Puncture wounds
• Swollen abdomen
• Trauma (such as a fall or being hit by a vehicle)
• Allergic reactions
Should any of these occur, or should your pet experience something else that you feel warrants emergency care, don’t hesitate to seek appropriate care. We recommend phoning ahead whenever possible, as this gives us the chance to assess the situation, advise on first aid measures that you can apply in the interim, and prepare the hospital for your pet’s arrival.
While we certainly hope that you never experience a pet emergency, it’s good to know where you can turn if and when that moment arises. Rest assured that should your companion need urgent medical attention, you can count on the team at Animal Medical Center – any time, day or night. Help is only a phone call away!
