At Animal Emergency Care of Braselton, our experienced and compassionate team is standing by to help your pet in an emergency. We know that your animal is a part of the family. That's why we're committed to providing quality, comprehensive, and fast care in a variety of emergent situations.
Accidents happen, and our team is here to help you and your animal handle any emergency that comes your way. Some of the most common conditions we treat include:
Seizures, or abnormal electrical activity within your animal's brain, leading to symptoms including collapsing, muscle twitching and jerking, drooling or foaming at the mouth, and loss of consciousness. The cause of seizures varies for each animal, but may include epilepsy, toxin ingestion, head trauma, and cancerous tumors within the brain.
Accidental Poisonings, which can occur if your pet gets into something he shouldn't
Bloat, a life-threatening condition in dogs in which the stomach fills up with gas
Blunt Force Trauma, including broken bones after being hit by a car or sustaining a fall
Foreign Body Ingestion Other Gastrointestinal Problems, which may lead to symptoms including vomiting and/or diarrhea
Breathing Difficulties, such as choking or coughing caused by an airway obstruction, allergies, and/or acute respiratory distress
Lacerations, Burns, Bites, and Other Wounds, which can occur from a variety of incidences, including animal fights, altercations with wildlife, and elopement
No matter what accident or injury has occurred, our experienced staff uses a combination of advanced skills and best-practice techniques and technology to quickly triage, diagnose, and treat your animal in need.
You know your pet better than anyone, so if you believe that your animal is suddenly acting unusual and/or exhibiting signs and symptoms of pain (including pacing, panting, whimpering, and defensive/protective behaviors), then it's important to bring your dog to a veterinarian for evaluation. Of course, if a known incident occurs such as a car accident or animal fight, or if you think your animal may have eaten something toxic, then don't delay. The sooner your animal is seen by an emergency veterinarian, the sooner appropriate treatment can be implemented, which can significantly improve outcomes for your pet's health and well-being.
The emergency veterinarian team at Emergency Care of Braselton is dedicated to providing the caring, calming, and effective veterinary services that your pet may need in a time of emergency. We'll do what it takes to keep your pet as safe and as stress-free as possible throughout its time under our care.
