Frankfort Animal Clinic has the staff, training, and facilities to handle emergencies when they arise. Our veterinarians and staff have received extensive training in emergency and critical care. We can provide immediate intervention and stabilization, as well as:
- Fluid and oxygen support
- Quick imaging of the chest, abdomen, and bones
- An in-house laboratory
- Experience with Emergency surgery
If your pet is experiencing an emergency during our office hours, it’s a good idea to call ahead if the situation permits – that will ensure that we’re ready to see your pet the moment they arrive – but we know that’s not always possible. Time is, of course, of the essence. Use your judgment and come in as soon as you can.
If you suspect that your pet has ingested poison, try to bring the label with you. You might also try calling the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center poison hotline at (888) 426-4435.
Office hours emergencies are treated on a triage basis.
If your pet’s emergency happens after hours, we recommend that you seek help at a qualified, emergency care hospital where your pet will be monitored 24/7 and adjustments can be made to their treatment in the middle of the night if necessary.
