veterinarian in longview txWhen to Seek Emergency Pet Care in Longview, TX

If your pet is experiencing an emergency during regular business hours, please bring him / her to the hospital immediately. If possible, please try to call in advance so we can prepare for your arrival.

The easiest answer as to whether you should seek emergency care for your pet is when you feel his or her medical condition is serious and cannot wait until normal business hours. However, when discerning whether a pet needs emergency care, consider if she or he is exhibiting certain symptoms or has experienced any of the following:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Acute abdominal swelling
  • Electric shock
  • Excessive vomiting or diarrhea
  • Cuts, lacerations or bite wounds
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Exhibits symptoms of heat stroke or hypothermia
  • Seizures
  • Snake bites
  • High or low temperature (more than 104 or less than 100 degrees)
  • Unable to urinate or defecate

For after-hours emergency care, our answering service will supply you with relevant information and referral to a local emergency hospital for timely care. We will transport serious cases to the emergency hospital if needed for overnight observation.
