ACCESSIBILITY

Fast, responsible caretaking is critical when an emergency occurs. Our skilled technicians and knowledgeable physicians work together seamlessly to quickly respond to your ailing pet. During the emergency procedure, we will keep you informed of all treatment options and related costs so you remain up-to-date and involved with your pet’s care.

Please call our office at 925-938-7700 the moment an accident happens to let us know you are on your way. When given notice before you and your pet arrive, we can prepare for all services that might be necessary.

Some of the emergency services we provide include:

  • Assessment and stabilization 
  • In-House laboratory testing
  • Pain management
  • X-Rays
  • Ultrasound
  • Wound care

 Urgent care services

We have urgent care appointments available for those situations that are not life-threatening but still require prompt attention. If you feel like an urgent care appointment is necessary for your pet, please call our office and we will arrange a time at which they can be seen.

We see pets for any of the following crises requiring urgent attention: 

  • Critical injuries or trauma (car accident, broken bone, animal attack)
  • Diarrhea or vomiting that continues for long periods of time
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Fever, shock, or depression
  • Poison ingestion (suspected or observed)
  • Severe pain, collapse, first seizure (or more than two seizures within 24 hours if there is a history of seizures)
  • Trouble breathing or continual coughing

If you think your pet may have ingested poisonous items and our office is not currently open, we advise you to call the American Association of Poison Control Centers at 1-800-222-1222 for assistance.
