Emergency medicine

When something unexpected happens to your animal or your animal suddenly becomes very ill, access to an experienced emergency veterinarian is essential.

The most common reasons for presenting your animal to an emergency veterinarian are difficulties breathing, sudden and severe bleeding, injuries of all kinds including common bite wounds, severe vomiting or diarrhoea, painful and distended abdomen, inability to urinate, difficulties giving birth, heat stroke, uncontrolled epilepsy, inappropriate mental state, uncoordinated walking, collapse, intoxication (poisons or medications), insect and snake bites, persistent pain, and sudden severe limping.

In case of emergency, please, call us, if at all possible, so we can prepare as best we can to help your pet. We have access to all our diagnostic equipment, including CT to quickly diagnose skull trauma or acute brain haematoma, and to an ultrasound machine to perform FAST (focused assessment sonography for trauma). We can ensure, for example, constant oxygen therapy, treatment of brain oedema, intravenous infusion of lipid emulsion to treat selected intoxications, emergency surgery – all coordinated by a specialist in emergency and critical care medicine.
