After-Hour Animal Emergency Care Here for Your Pet When They Need it the Most
Just like in humans, pet emergencies strike at any time. At dinner time, in the middle of the night, or in the early morning hours, we're here for you. We know your pet is a member of the family and our best-in-class care is always available to pets in need. Regardless of the severity of your pet's issue, an urgent care veterinarian is on site and ready to see you. If you’re coming from Lisle, Downers Grove, Naperville, or other surrounding communities, our emergency care services can take care of your pet when they need it the most.
Never hesitate to call us if you think your pet may be having an emergency. Our knowledgeable, caring veterinary technicians will quickly assess whether your pet needs immediate attention. Pets can’t tell us what’s hurting, and you may question what behavior indicates an emergency. Sometimes it's just plain hard to tell. Even if your pet doesn’t need prompt care, our friendly technicians may be able to put your mind at ease.
Signs of a Pet Emergency
Although it may not always be clear what is or isn’t an emergency, some signs are more telling than others. If your pet is experiencing any of the following symptoms, please call us or walk directly into our animal hospital:
- Breathing that’s labored or rapid
- Weakness or loss of consciousness
- Persistent vomiting or diarrhea
- Blood in their urine, stool, or vomit
- Straining to urinate or defecate
- A recent or current seizure
- Bleeding or serious injury/trauma
- Ingestion of medications that aren’t theirs
- Ingestion of any inedible objects
- Ingestion of a toxic substance, such as household cleaners, chocolate, antifreeze, or rodent poison
The above signs are only a portion of what might indicate an emergency. Please call us right away if you think your pet has a problem or needs urgent treatment. We’ll fully evaluate your pet’s condition, provide professional compassionate medical care, fully communicate about their care, and work with your regular veterinarian for ongoing treatment if needed.
