Vet Prior to Arriving

If you are experiencing an emergency with your pet, it is best to call our veterinarian before arriving at the animal hospital. Though most animal hospitals do not require you to call ahead, it is best to do so. If you are wondering why you should contact your vet before arriving, it can help the vet prepare for your pet’s arrival and ensure someone is available at the clinic to help your pet.

Our veterinarians at Wintermere Pointe Animal Hospital in Winter Garden, FL, understand that pet emergencies happen and are here to treat your pet.

What Is a Vet emergency? 

Before concluding that your pet is suffering from an emergency, it is best to take a deep breath and determine the seriousness of your pet’s condition.

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Eye injury
  • Digesting poison
  • Seizures
  • Heatstroke
  • Broken bones

If it is a true emergency, it is best to call the vet before arriving, letting them know you are on your way and your pet’s condition.
