We have veterinarians and personnel on duty seven days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. If you ever feel that your pet needs immediate emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our staff will work to accommodate your pet's medical needs.
We triage every pet as soon as it arrives. If the pet is found to be in critical need of medical attention, the pet is treated immediately. Pets that are assessed to be stable are seen by the doctors as quickly as possible. We do our very best to keep the waiting to a minimum, but like every emergency room, there are busy times when there may be a wait.
If you are not sure whether or not your pet has a medical emergency, please call to speak with a member of the Yalesville team. Most often, if an attentive pet owner feels concerned, there is an issue to be addressed. Below is a list of signs suggestive of specific emergency conditions. The list is not complete. If you are unsure whether your pet is showing signs of a serious condition, please call us for advice.
If you suspect your pet may have been poisoned, please call the ASPCA poison control center at (888) 426-4435 right away.
