Steps to Take In A Pet Emergency

If you are experiencing a veterinary emergency, follow the steps below.

  • Call Ahead If Possible -  If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately; however if possible, it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
  • Follow Instructions Provided - When you call to let Rancho Park Veterinary Clinic know you are on your way, the first responder may give you detailed instructions on how to apply first aid or otherwise keep your pet comfortable while in transit to the hospital. Follow these instructions dutifully.
  • Remain Calm - Remain calm and be extra careful around your pet. When an animal is in pain they often react negatively towards anyone trying to help and could bite or scratch.  Cats and Dogs can sense when their owners are panicked, so remaining calm is important in keeping the situation under control
  • Bring Your Pet In For Care - Do not put yourself at risk! Safely bring your pet to our Los Angeles emergency veterinary clinic

  • Do I need to call ahead?

    Rancho Park Veterinary Clinic provides emergency and urgent veterinary care for cats and dogs during our regular clinic hours. It's always best to contact us in advance if you can, but we understand that in emergency situations that's not always possible.

  • What situations require emergency veterinary care?

    The following situations are examples of emergencies that require immediate care:

    • Severe bleeding or bleeding that doesn't stop
    • Obvious signs of pain or extreme anxiety
    • Choking, difficulty breathing, or continuous coughing/gagging
    • Fractured bones or severe lameness
    • Seizures and/or staggering
    • Bleeding from nose, mouth, rectum, or blood in the urine
    • Inability to urinate or pass feces, or pain associated with urinating or passing feces
    • Severe vomiting or diarrhea; 2+ episodes in 24-hours
    • Injuries to the eye(s)
    • Your pet has ingested something poisonous (such as antifreeze, xylitol, chocolate, rodent poison, etc.)
    • Heat stress or heatstroke
    • Refusal to drink for 24 hours or more
    • Unconsciousness
  • How long will we have to wait to see the vet?

    Emergency wait times can be unpredictable, much like they are at a human emergency room.  Patients are seen in accordance with their level of need, and we will see your pet as soon as we are able

    Since we cannot predict what cases we will see and when they will arrive, it is best to try and call ahead to find out whether we are able to provide emergency care for your dog or cat in a sufficiently quick manner, we will refer an alternative hospital
