Emergency Veterinary Treatment From Doctors Who Care
When your pet has a health emergency, you want access to an emergency veterinary professional but you also want a doctor who cares. Your emergency doctor should know without explanation that your pet is special to you. You expect them to be patient with your pet and pay attention to their symptoms. You also want them to listen to your thoughts and hear your concerns. You expect them to treat you and your pet with compassion and kindness
At Hebron Veterinary Hospital, we understand how traumatic it is when your pet is suffering. Whether it’s a minor problem or an emergency situation, we believe your pet deserves consistent treatment from doctors who know their history and have an established relationship. That’s why we want to be here for you and your pet during an emergency. We can’t be in the office around the clock, but when you call our emergency line and leave a message, we promise to connect with you as soon as possible.
Recognizing a Pet Emergency
You know your pet better than anyone. When they’re not feeling well, you schedule a veterinary appointment so we can figure out what’s wrong. Because you understand your pet so well, you’re also in the best position to notice when they need urgent medical attention.
Each pet is different and symptoms range in severity. Keep our emergency number handy and call us if your pet is behaving strangely or you notice any of these conditions. We’ll advise you on what to do next.

Straining to urinate or defecate
Foaming at the mouth
