Urgent Care

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

No loving pet parent ever wants to see their four-legged family member in distress. Unfortunately, unexpected illnesses and sudden accidents happen. At Barker Animal Hospital, we want you to know that you’ve got a dedicated, experienced team in your corner.

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

Some of the signs that your pet may need immediate medical attention include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Ingestion of a toxic substance or foreign object 
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts, lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Vomiting or diarrhea lasting longer than 24 hours
  • Bleeding
  • Trauma, such as from 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 any of these signs, seek help right away. At Barker Animal Hospital, we always recommend calling ahead when an emergency occurs. This allows us to assess the situation, provide first aid instructions and prepare the hospital and our team for your pet’s arrival. Of course, should the nature of the emergency be too urgent for a phone call, please do not hesitate to come directly in for immediate attention.

We genuinely 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 Barker Animal Hospital will be here to provide the highest level of care available.
