When should I consult in an emergency?
Since your furry companions can't verbalize their pain, it's sometimes difficult to understand what's happening to them and know when it's urgent. Pay attention to their body language and their general state, it is their way of communicating with you.
Here is a list of conditions that excuse an emergency visit to our centres:
- Absence of urine
- Difficult delivery
- Energy drop
- Loss of appetite
- Eye injury
- Epileptiform seizure
- Abnormal gait
- Persistent diarrhea
- Difficulty breathing
- Ingestion of an object
- Bite or open wound
- Loss of consciousness
- Trauma or accident
- Abnormal vomiting
What differentiates an emergency and referral centre from your neighbourhood hospital or clinic is also the technologic equipment used there. Our teams have on-site access to more complete and state-of-the-art equipment (MRI, CT-Scan, on-site laboratory, etc.) to be able to make a complete diagnosis more quickly.
With more than 35 years of clinical expertise, our three teams in Brossard, Montreal and Laval care about the health and well-being of your pet. They always adopt a global and human approach in order to accompany you throughout the care of your animal.
What services are offered?
- Continuity of care (24-hour medical staff)
- Intensive care (constant monitoring and ongoing care planning)
- Emergency surgery
- Complete laboratory on site
- Blood transfusion (on-site blood bank)
- Sending the consultation report to your family veterinarian
Our teams specializing in emergency medicine and intensive care are always ready to welcome you, whether you are referred by your family veterinarian or when your animal has an accident in the middle of the night.
Thanks to our state-of-the-art equipment, the expertise of our veterinarians and the hard work of our animal health technicians, we remain available to take care of your animal as if it were our own.
