The clinicians at All Creatures Care Cottage Veterinary Hospital are pet owners just like you. We understand the important place your pets have in your family, and we are pleased to provide them with the utmost care in a friendly environment. Our veterinary clinic has been serving patients for thirty years. We have established relationships not only with our various clients but also with other providers in our community. Should your pet require emergency care, we will do all that we can to either handle your situation with effective treatment or refer you to an emergency facility where your pet will receive compassionate care.

Does your pet require emergency medical attention?

In some instances, the need for emergency assistance is obvious. If a pet is injured in a fight or unfortunate accident please bring them into the hospital immediately for emergency care. Our staff is highly trained to handle emergency cases. In the event that an emergency happens when we are closed we advise contacting the Orange County Emergency Animal Hospital at (949) 261-7979 for immediate care. Toxicity and other serious illness may be more difficult to detect. Because you are familiar with your pet’s normal habits and behaviors, you will be able to detect when “something isn’t right.” This is when you should contact our office. Early care can be life-saving.

Toxicity is one of the common issues that requires emergency medical care. Pets can get into a number of situations or substances that pose a serious risk to their health. These include:

  • Poisonous plants
  • Rat poison
  • Insecticides
  • Chocolate
  • Human medication
  • Household cleaners
  • Bones and other foreign objects

What to do if your pet is injured, poisoned, or seriously ill:

  • Remain as calm as possible. Panic on your part will transfer to your pet.
  • Wrap your pet before attempting to transport. This will protect them and you from injury.
  • If your pet is bleeding, apply direct pressure to the area.
  • If you suspect poisoning, bring product packaging with you to the emergency clinic.

Because you never know when a pet emergency may occur, it is beneficial to keep our number in an easily accessible location. Additionally, you may want to post our number as well as that of the Orange County Emergency Animal Hospital where it can be seen by anyone who may be caring for your pet.

Emergency veterinary care may involve services such as emergency surgery, STAT diagnostic testing to determine the cause of illness, x-rays and ultrasounds, and oxygen therapy. In our clinic as well as those dedicated to emergency care, critical pets are treated by highly-trained personnel.

We are here to assist you in keeping your pet as healthy as possible. Contact All Creatures Care Cottage Veterinary Hospital today.
