What to Do In A Pet Emergency

  • Call Ahead If Possible - During regular business hours call us right away. After hours, call one of the emergency animal hospitals listed above to let them know you are on the way.
  • Follow Instructions Provided - When you call to let the emergency vet hospital know you are on your way, instructions may be provided to help you apply first aid or otherwise make your pet as comfortable as possible. Follow these instructions carefully.
  • Remain Calm - Remain calm and be extra careful around your pet. When an animal is in pain they often react negatively towards anyone trying to help and could bite or scratch.
  • Bring Your Pet For Emergency Vet Care - Do not put yourself at risk! Safely bring your pet to our La Pine veterinary clinic or the after-hours emergency vet location above.

    • Choking, difficulty breathing, or continuous coughing/gagging

    • Refusal to drink for 24 hours or more
    • Unconsciousness
  • How long will we have to wait to see the vet?

    Our La Pine animal hospital is just like a human doctor's office—it can be unpredictable and you may have to wait. 

    We cannot predict what cases we will see and when they will arrive. If possible, call ahead to find out whether we can provide emergency care for your dog or cat.

    If we are unable to fit an emergency appointment into our vet's schedule we recommend that you visit the 24/7 animal emergency hospital detailed above. 

  • What happens if my pet needs to stay in the hospital?

    Some veterinary emergencies require intensive overnight care. At La Pine Animal Hospital we provide overnight care for animals in need. While in our care, our dedicated team will treat your pet as if they were our own.

    If for any reason we are unable to provide adequate overnight care for your pet we will arrange for your animal to be cared for at a 24-hour medical boarding facility near La Pine.

  • What types of animals do you treat?

    Our emergency veterinarians are mostly experienced with cats and dogs but will see other small mammals.
