Steps to Take In A Pet Emergency

Take the following steps if you are having a veterinary emergency:

  • Call Ahead If Possible - Call us immediately during usual business hours. For after-hours help, contact one of the emergency animal clinics listed above to tell them you are on the way.
  • Follow Instructions Provided - When you call the emergency veterinarians to let them know you are coming, they may provide you with instructions to help you apply first aid or otherwise make your pet as comfortable. Follow these instructions carefully.
  • Remain Calm - Stay calm and be extra cautious around your pet. When animals experience pain, they can react negatively towards anyone trying to help and may bite or scratch.
  • Bring Your Pet In For Care - Don't put yourself at risk! Safely take your pet to our Beacon veterinary clinic or the after-hours emergency vet location above.

    • Severe vomiting or diarrhea; 2+ episodes in 24-hours

    • Heat stress or heatstroke
    • Unconsciousness
  • How long will we have to wait to see the vet?

    Our Beacon pet hospital operates similarly to a human doctor's office—it can be unpredictable, and you might need to wait. 

    We can't predict the cases we will see and when they show up. If you can, call us in advance to find out if we can provide your cat or dogs with emergency care.

    If we are unable to fit an emergency appointment into our vet's schedule we suggest visiting one of the 24/7 animal emergency hospitals listed above. 

  • What happens if my pet needs to stay in the hospital?

    Some veterinary emergencies require intensive overnight care. At The Beacon Veterinary Associates we provide overnight care for animals in need.

    While in our care, our dedicated team will treat your pet as if they were our own.

  • What types of animals do you treat?

    Our emergency veterinarians are able to treat cats and dogs. But, we might be able to see exotic pets such as rodents and rabbits in extreme situations.
