Pet Emergency Care

Pet emergencies are almost always unexpected. In the event that you need an emergency vet to treat your sick or injured pet, you can count on us to be available to help during our regular office hours. Call (513) 474-5700 before coming over so our vet team can prepare a room and any necessary equipment and be ready for your arrival.

Our pets can’t tell us if they need to go to the ER, but their condition can speak volumes about the seriousness of their situation. Below are some of the most common indications of a pet emergency:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chronic coughing
  • Gagging/choking
  • Prolonged vomiting/diarrhea
  • Straining or unable to urinate or defecate
  • Has had multiple seizures in 15 minutes
  • Fell from a high place
  • Hit by a car
  • Bleeding from ears, nose, and/or mouth
  • Blood in stool/vomit
  • Has had no food or water in over 24 hours
  • Cries out in pain when touched
  • Can’t stand or walk
  • Abdomen appears bloated and feels hard when touched
  • Possibly has broken bones
