Pet emergencies can happen anytime, and when they do, we want you to know that we’re here to help. We have a team of veterinarians standing by to make sure your pets receive the high-quality care they need, when they need it. Our emergency veterinarians are rigorously trained and highly skilled in their areas of expertise. This allows them to provide the highest standard of emergency pet care in any situation.
What’s Considered a “Pet Emergency”?
We’re here anytime your regular veterinarian is unable to see you, or if your pet’s health situation has become more serious or complicated. You should also bring your pet to us if he needs care for any of the following:
- A life-threatening accident, such as being hit by a car
- Sudden illness
- Difficulty breathing
- Poison ingestion
- Reactions to vaccinations
- Surgical complications
About Our Emergency Pet Care Services
During a pet care emergency, it’s important that our team of pet emergency veterinarians gets critical health information as quickly as possible. When you bring your pet in, a trained veterinary technician will meet you and get all of your pet’s medical details. Your pet will be taken directly to our exam facilities for a preliminary exam. You may not be used to being separated from your pet when he’s receiving medical care, but we’ve found that pets are often better behaved when they’re away from their owners. This means we can get accurate information more quickly, and focus on getting your pet the medical treatment he needs.
At our state-of-the-art facility, we have the cutting-edge technology available to provide accurate diagnostics and effective treatment. Our advanced diagnostic tools include digital radiography, ultrasonography, endoscopy, and laparoscopy. We also have a variety of surgical equipment and supplies. At Arkansas Veterinary Emergency & Specialists in Little Rock, we’re ready for any pet emergency. You can rest easy, knowing we’ll provide your pet with the highest level of emergency veterinary care, and we’ll be with you every step of the way during his recovery.
