Your Emergency Visit
What to Expect ER

Our skilled emergency veterinarians treat and stabilize pets every day and night, on weekends and holidays, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. When your family veterinarian’s office is closed, we’re ready to help you through those scary times when your pet becomes suddenly ill, is injured or has eaten something potentially lethal.

Conditions we often treat:
  • Vomiting and diarrhea
  • Urinary obstruction in cats
  • Bloat
  • Motor vehicle trauma
  • Seizures
  • Foreign body extraction
  • Sudden-onset complications from diabetes, heart disease and kidney disease
If your pet requires immediate medical care:
  • If possible, call the emergency hospital before arriving so we can begin to assess your pet’s condition, help you with directions and prepare our emergency team.
  • If you are coming directly from your family veterinarian’s office, your doctor will have already called to let us know you’re on your way.
  • If you need help bringing your pet in from the car, we will be happy to assist you.
  • Medical records, current medication or any historical information you may have can provide insight into your pet’s condition. Your doctor will share records with us, but if you have anything else that might be helpful, please bring it with you.
  • Just like in an emergency hospital for humans, our emergency doctors and technicians focus on immediately evaluating your pet’s condition so treatment can begin as quickly as possible.
  • Emergency care involves stabilizing the patient and may include administering IV fluids, pain medications, oxygen therapy and sometimes blood or plasma transfusions.  
  • We inform your family veterinarian about your pet’s condition and treatment, as well as providing access to key medical information from your pet’s visit to BluePearl.
