Emergency Vet in Greensboro, NC

When your pet is facing a life-or-death health crisis, you need to know that your emergency vet in Greensboro, NC, stands ready to provide the services they need to survive and recover. Here at our clinic, you can count on our calm, experienced team to diagnose injured or sick pets quickly and accurately before administering lifesaving care. Emergency services at our pet clinic include:

  • Poison & Venom Treatment— Depending on the type of poison ingested, we can decide whether or not to induce vomiting (which can cause damage if the substance is corrosive) and/or administer antidotes and deactivating agents. Snake bites and other envenoming attacks can be treated with anti-venin
  • Breathing Problems—Our emergency veterinarians can remove or dislodge a foreign object stuck in your pet's airway. Medications to stop a severe allergy or asthma attack can also restore normal breathing.
  • Heat Stroke—If your pet is staggering, vomiting, fainting, or showing other signs of heat stroke, we can get their internal temperature down quickly to help prevent a fatal outcome. Our vets help also save the lives of pets suffering from hypothermia.
  • Trauma Care— Collision with cars, fights, falls, and other incidents can cause serious internal and external injuries. We can perform emergency surgery, close lacerations, ultrasound vital organs for potential damage, treat serious degloving injuries, and take digital X-rays to check for broken bones and other abnormalities. Our facility also provides blood transfusions and other important necessities.
  • Emergency Internal Medicine—We can diagnose and treat dangerous urinary blockages, difficult labor, GDV ("bloat"), and other internal emergencies.

Urgent Care for Injured & Sick Pets

There are also times when your pet is in need of timely veterinary assistance even if their life isn't in danger. This is especially true when your beloved friend is obviously experiencing discomfort. Bring your pet in for emergency care if you notice:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Lameness
  • Allergic Reactions
  • Heat Stroke

For instance, if your pet is limping, he may have sustained a strain or sprain; refusal to chew food may indicate a painful toothache or gum infection. Sick pets may not be in imminent danger but could definitely benefit from compassionate, expert treatment to bring their symptoms under control as quickly as possible.

An advanced case of dermatitis (skin rash) may not be dangerous in its own right, but the constant scratching it provokes may create open wounds in the skin (allowing for a secondary bacterial infection) if something isn't done quickly to soothe those symptoms. A miserable pet needs urgent care, and our emergency pet clinic is happy to provide it.
