What to do in a Pet Emergency
Basic First-Aid Strategies Can Be Helpful
Use basic first-aid strategies to help stabilize your pet for transportation to one of our clinics. Once you feel comfortable transporting your pet, head to our emergency pet clinic in Boulder or Westminster immediately. Call us ahead of time if you can.
- Strategies for Dogs
Approach your dog calmly and slowly. Kneel down and call their name. Back away and call for help if there's any indication of aggression.
If your pet seems passive, build a makeshift stretcher and gently lift him or her onto it, supporting the neck and back areas.
- Strategies for Cats
Your cat may experience pain as you stabilize them. To help prevent them from biting, gently place a blanket or towel over their head.
Slowly lift your cat and place him or her in an open-topped box or carrier, carefully supporting the head and neck areas.
Extremely professional and caring staff towards you and your fur babies. Very clean facility. Staff and vet did not rush us; they took time to listen to me and check out my puppy. Never felt rushed or like I didn’t have a say in treatment. Also, did not try to gauge me for unnecessary treatment. Highly recommend.
