Critical Care & House Calls

Critical Care

Do you know who to call in the event of a pet emergency?

As a loving pet parent, you never want to see your four-legged family member in distress. Unfortunately, unexpected illnesses and sudden accidents can occur at any time. The way you handle these types of situations can make all the difference in the world for your loved one. At Kanuga Animal Clinic, we want you to know that you’ve got a dedicated team in your corner. You can rest easy knowing that we’ll be there for you in your time of need.

Our hospital is equipped to provide life-saving critical care at a moment’s notice. With staff members who are experienced in emergency medicine, we can quickly diagnose the problem and deliver the most timely and effective care. Most importantly, we will handle your companion’s case with the utmost compassion, doing everything within our power to achieve a positive outcome.

Some of the signs that your pet may require urgent medical attention include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Ingestion of a foreign object or toxic substance
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts, lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Vomiting or diarrhea lasting longer than 24 hours
  • Bleeding
  • Trauma, such as a fall or being hit by a car
  • Swollen or tender abdomen
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Lameness
  • Disorientation
  • Foaming at the mouth
  • Convulsions/seizures
  • Loss of consciousness

If you notice your companion exhibiting any of these signs, it’s time to call for help right away. At Kanuga Animal Clinic, we always recommend calling ahead when an emergency occurs. This allows us to evaluate the situation and provide first aid instructions over the phone. It also lets us prepare the hospital and other team members for your pet’s arrival. Of course, should the nature of your pet’s emergency not allow time for a phone call, don’t hesitate to come directly in for immediate attention.

We sincerely hope you never experience the need for urgent veterinary care. If you do, however, we want you to know who to call. The team at Kanuga Animal Clinic will be here to provide the highest level of care available. You can count on us!

HOUSE CALLS

Can’t make it to the clinic with your sick or nervous pet? Have multiple pets, making it challenging to transport them all? Our house call service may be just the solution you need!

There are many situations in which bringing your animal companion to the vet simply isn’t possible. Perhaps your pet is too sick to make the trip. Or, maybe your companion experiences such intense vet-visit anxiety that bringing him or her in is just too stressful for you both. Perhaps you have so many pets that scheduling and managing multiple appointments is too much to handle. Or, maybe it’s just that you’re simply too busy to find the time.

Whatever the reason, at Kanuga Animal Clinic, we believe your furry family member deserves the same quality care as all of our other patients. That’s why we offer house calls as part of our comprehensive animal health care services.

Our clients and their animal companions benefit from house call services in a variety of ways. Pet owners can enjoy the convenience and time savings of not having to transport their companions from their homes to the veterinary clinic. Pets enjoy the benefit of receiving high quality, one on one veterinary care in a setting where they feel most at ease. Multi-pet homes also benefit because it eliminates the need to transport several animals, either separately or at the same time. With a house call, all of the animals within the home can be seen in one convenient appointment.

House calls are available for annual visits, including physical exams and vaccinations, as well as sick calls and more. Additionally, diagnostic testing, such as blood work or urinalysis, can be gathered during the appointment and brought back to our in-house laboratory for further analysis.

At Kanuga Animal Clinic, we believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality veterinary care when a trip to the clinic isn’t possible. Let us bring our services to you and help keep all your furry friends happy and healthy. Call us today to discuss whether house calls would be a good option for you.
