During our regular office hours the Pet Samaritan Clinic is prepared to handle any emergency on a priority basis. Please call us immediately if you feel that your pet is experiencing an emergency.
It can be difficult to know when a symptom is indicative of an emergency. Something subtle like lethargy or weakness, or loss of appetite could be an emergent situation. A male cat that is not urinating is always an emergency. Generally, it is best to have a pet seen early when a symptom is present as the causative disease process may have been present for a while; remember that a dog or cat will not come to you with a complaint like a person would. No one knows your pet better than you; if you feel it is an emergency, we will see your pet immediately, in less serious situations, we will arrange to see your pet the same day whenever possible.
