We all become worried when our beloved pets become ill, but when should we take them to an emergency hospital? Annapolis, Maryland has an ER for pets, Anne Arundel Veterinary Emergency Clinic (AAVEC) but when should it be utilized? What symptoms are serious and need immediate attention, and what can wait until the next day for your regular doctor?
Of course, there are many other problems that pets can have. Dogs and cats can get into some very odd predicaments that may also require ER care. The dog that gets a tin can be stuck to its tongue, or the bone lodged around its lower jaw, does not have a true emergency, but they sure will be happier if they can get them removed as soon as possible!
If you need advice on whether your pet’s symptoms should have immediate attention or feel your pet should be seen immediately, call Hoffman Animal Hospital (410) 757-3566 for advice. We will be happy to discuss your pet and their problem.
If you feel your pet needs to be seen immediately and it is after office hours, call Anne Arundel Veterinary Emergency Clinic (410) 224-0331. The doctors at AAVEC can stabilize and treat your pet until it can be transferred and/or monitored by our team at HAH.
