As a general practice, we also offer non-emergency services such as vaccinations, spaying, neutering and preventative medicine. We are also breeder friendly and will help guide you through a successful litter if the need presents itself.
Our Primary Goal
We provide intensive care facilities for patients that are critically ill or injured. Some of the emergency situations we encounter are: injuries associated with bone fractures, pets hit by cars, snakebites, seizures, poisonings, burns, electrocutions, near-drownings, shock, heat stroke, heart or breathing failure, bleeding, vomiting, diarrhea, difficulty giving birth, and inability to pass urine.
Our services also provide prompt relief from other mishaps or ailments that may not be life threatening, but are painful or a cause for concern on the part of the pet owner.
On many occasions, CVHFL experiences a surge of emergencies. Our admitting staff triages all incoming patients and identifies those that have a life threatening condition. Those patients are immediately taken in and lifesaving measures are promptly initiated. In these situations, less critical cases may be asked to wait. We will examine all pets presented to us in as short a time as possible. Your patience and understanding are appreciated.
Extended Care for Your Pet
Although some pets may be released to go home within a few hours of admission, many may require hospitalization, treatment, and tests. Your pets medical records will be faxed to your regular veterinary hospital, or to the hospital of your choice, if you decide on transferring to a specialty hospital or your regular family veterinarian.
