At Swansboro Animal Hospital Emergency and Trauma Center, we understand that emergencies can happen at any time, leaving you worried and in need of immediate veterinary care for your beloved pet. Our dedicated team of experienced veterinarians and skilled staff are here to provide urgent medical attention when every second counts.
Emergencies can be a terrible experience for both pets and pet owners. That’s why our dedicated team is committed to making the process as stress-free as possible. When you come to us for emergency care, we promise to communicate with you every step of the way, ensuring that you are informed and involved in the treatment process. Our compassionate approach helps alleviate anxiety, providing you with peace of mind as we work together to address your pet’s needs.

If your pet experiences any of the following, it is crucial to seek emergency care:

Trauma or Injury: Accidents, falls, or encounters with vehicles can result in life-threatening injuries, including broken bones, internal bleeding, or severe wounds.
Sudden Illness: If your pet displays sudden and severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, seizures, uncontrolled bleeding, or loss of consciousness, immediate medical intervention is necessary.
Toxicity or Ingestion of Harmful Substances: Ingesting toxic plants, chemicals, medications, or other harmful substances can have serious consequences and requires immediate evaluation and treatment.
Difficulty Giving Birth: If your pet is experiencing complications during labor or unable to deliver her puppies or kittens, emergency veterinary care is vital for the health and well-being of both the mother and her offspring.
Severe Pain: If your pet is exhibiting signs of severe pain, such as vocalization, restlessness, or reluctance to move, it is essential to seek emergency care as it could be an indicator of a serious underlying condition.

Preparing for an Emergency:

While emergencies are unpredictable, we encourage pet owners to attempt to call ahead whenever possible. Notifying us of the situation in advance allows our team to prepare the necessary resources and personnel to address your pet’s needs immediately upon arrival. However, please remember that if you are in a critical situation, do not hesitate to bring your pet directly to us for emergency care.
At Swansboro Animal Hospital Emergency and Trauma Center, we are dedicated to providing swift and comprehensive emergency care for your cherished pets. When faced with an emergency, trust our experienced team to provide the highest level of veterinary care, ensuring the well-being and comfort of your beloved companion.
