Pet emergencies can catch us off guard, occurring at any time of day or night. These situations can be distressing, whether it’s an injury, sudden illness, or unexpected health issues. At Angelus Pet Hospital, we’re committed to being available when you and your pet need us the most.

When Is Emergency Veterinary Service Necessary

Pets can’t communicate their discomfort or pain in the same way humans can. That’s why it’s crucial for pet parents to be vigilant and observant of any sudden changes in behavior, appetite, or physical condition. Emergency veterinary services become necessary when your pet shows signs of distress, such as difficulty breathing, severe injuries, sudden paralysis, ingestion of toxic substances, persistent vomiting, or any other unusual symptoms that require immediate attention. Trust your instincts, and don’t hesitate to seek emergency care for your beloved pet.
