Is your pet experiencing behaviors or symptoms you are concerned about? Contact our clinic right away, or one of the after-hours vet emergency clinics locations listed above.

Steps to Take In A Pet Emergency

Follow these steps if you are experiencing a veterinary emergency: 

  • Call Ahead If Possible - Call us right away if the emergency has occurred during regular business hours. After hours, call the emergency animal hospital listed above to let them know you are on your way. 
  • Follow Instructions Provided - When you call the emergency pet hospital to let them know you are on your way, staff may provide instructions to help you apply first aid or otherwise help comfort your pet. Follow these instructions carefully. 
  • Remain Calm - Stay calm and be extra careful around your pet. Animals in pain often react negatively toward anyone trying to help and may bite or scratch.
  • Bring Your Pet In For Care - Do not put yourself at risk! Safely bring your pet to our Smokey Point veterinary clinic or one of the after-hours emergency vet locations above.

  • How long will we have to wait to see the vet?

    Our Smokey Point animal hospital is just like a human doctor's office—it can be unpredictable and you may have to wait. 

    We cannot predict what cases we will see and when they will arrive. If possible, call ahead to find out whether we are able to provide emergency care for your dog or cat.

    If we are unable to fit an emergency appointment into our vet's schedule we recommend that you visit one of the 24/7 animal emergency hospitals detailed above. 

  • What happens if my pet needs to stay in the hospital?

    Some veterinary emergencies require intensive overnight care. At Advanced Care Animal Clinic we provide overnight care for animals in need.

    While in our care, our dedicated team will treat your pet as if they were our own.

  • What types of animals do you treat?

    Our emergency veterinarians are mostly experienced with cats and dogs.
