Accepting ONLY clearly emergent/critical cases, direct transfers for continued care, or those that will likely become critical if not seen within a day.
RED RIVER ANIMAL EMERGENCY HOSPITAL IS ALWAYS OPEN
IS THIS AN EMERGENCY?
Each member of our staff is a pet parent, so we understand that your pet is an important member of your family. As with any loved one, you want him/her to have access to the best possible emergency and critical care services available. We’ve listed a few common indicators that your pet may need emergency care.
WHAT TO EXPECT
This includes gathering information about your pet and his/her symptoms so that we can make a quick diagnosis and begin treatment.
From serious injuries to ongoing illnesses, and from minor scrapes to the ingestion of foreign objects, we’re fully prepared to deal with any situation. Be advised that, like any emergency room, we see patients with the most acute needs first, regardless of when they check in. This may mean added wait time for less critical patients.
Diagnoses & Treatment
We are equipped and trained to diagnose your pet’s condition and provide you with a treatment plan or list of treatment options. If your pet requires hospitalization, we ask that your visits be kept short so as not to interfere with treatment. Phoning ahead to coordinate visitation times is appreciated.
Because we are an emergency hospital only, you will need to follow up with your regular veterinarian for ongoing care. We will transfer all pertinent information to your pet’s primary care provider.
End of Life Care
Euthanasia is always difficult. We understand this and offer compassionate, thoughtful care for pets and their families throughout the process.
