Do you know who to turn to in the event of a pet emergency?

As a caring pet parent, you never want to see your four-legged family member in distress. Unfortunately, unexpected illnesses and sudden accidents can occur at any time. At Peterborough West Animal Hospital, we want you to know that you’ve got a dedicated team of experienced professionals in your corner.

Our hospital is equipped to deliver life-saving critical care at a moment’s notice. With staff members who are skilled in emergency medicine, we can swiftly diagnose the problem and deliver timely and effective care. Most importantly, we’ll handle your companion’s case with the utmost compassion, doing everything within our power to achieve a positive outcome.

Some of the signs that your pet may need urgent medical attention include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Ingestion of a toxic substance or foreign object 
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts, lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Vomiting or diarrhea lasting longer than 24 hours
  • Bleeding
  • Trauma, such as from a fall or being hit by a car
  • Swollen or tender abdomen
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Lameness
  • Disorientation
  • Foaming at the mouth
  • Convulsions/seizures
  • Loss of consciousness

If you notice any of these signs, seek veterinary care right away. At Peterborough West Animal Hospital, we always recommend calling ahead when an emergency occurs. This allows us to evaluate the situation, provide first aid instructions and get the hospital and our team ready for your pet’s arrival. Of course, should the nature of your companion’s emergency be too urgent for a phone call, don’t hesitate to come directly in for immediate attention.

We sincerely hope you never experience the need for emergency veterinary care. If you do, however, we want you to know who you can turn to. The team at Peterborough West Animal Hospital will be here to provide the highest level of care available.
