Pets get into the darnedest things

When your family veterinarian’s office is closed, BluePearl is open — ready to help you through those scary times when your pet becomes suddenly ill, is injured, or has ingested something that could be lethal. Serving as an extension of your family veterinarian’s practice, BluePearl provides emergency care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.

Our team of emergency doctors and veterinary technicians focus on evaluating your pet’s condition quickly so that appropriate treatment can begin. From minor infections to life-threatening trauma, the BluePearl emergency team evaluates, diagnoses and treats a range of medical problems, including those that may require surgery. And, because BluePearl is a specialty hospital with a full complement of veterinary specialists, your pet can be referred to the appropriate specialist, if needed.

For pets requiring hospitalization, the inpatient unit and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at BluePearl are designed for comfort and safety. Much like the ICU in a human hospital, BluePearl’s 24/7 ICU has sophisticated vital signs monitoring equipment and other technology to address your pet’s health needs. The ICU and inpatient unit are staffed with compassionate veterinarians, veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants experienced in emergency medicine.

Conditions we often treat:

  • Vomiting and diarrhea
  • Urinary obstruction in cats
  • Bloat
  • Motor vehicle trauma
  • Seizures
  • Sudden-onset complications arising from diabetes, heart disease, and kidney disease
