Emergency Procedures

If you have an emergency Monday - Friday 8am - 7pm or Saturday 9am - 2pm, give us a call at 519-822-1805. If you have an emergency that is not during those times, this is what you should do:

What You Should Do

  1. Try to remain calm.

  2. Be careful when handling your pet. Animals in pain may bite.

  3. If your pet is bleeding and there is no foreign object such as glass in the wound, then apply direct pressure to try to slow the blood flow.

  4. If your pet has eaten something that you think may be poisonous, keep the package and bring it with you. You can also call Poison Control at (888) 426-4435.

  5. If you suspect your pet has broken a bone, or if your pet is unable to walk, move your pet very carefully. Place your pet on a flat surface or blanket to minimize movement during transport.

  6. Proceed quickly and safely to veterinary care.
