Emergencies with Pets
We know no one prepares for an emergency, but it’s very easy to take a few simple steps to stay prepared in the event something happens. The best care you can provide your pet is maintaining stability until you can arrive at our office. Try to remember every detail to provide the doctor with the most accurate history of the events leading to your arrival. The American Veterinary Medical Association’s first aid tips for pet owners is a comprehensive guide to quickly addressing all sorts of emergencies in pets. This guide can help with the basics through severe trauma, and will give guidance until you arrive at NHVH.
In case of emergency after hours please call (215) 345-5440 to reach our on-call veterinarian or email [email protected]
If you are looking for a specialist for your pet, please come in for an office visit and we will advise you of the best choice for your specific needs.
