Steps to Take In A Pet Emergency

Are you experiencing a veterinary emergency? Follow these steps. 

  • Call Ahead If Possible - Call us right away. We offer emergency walk-ins until 4 pm on weekdays. After hours, call one of the emergency animal hospitals listed above to let them know you are on your way. 
  • Follow Instructions Provided - When you call the emergency pet hospital, staff may provide instructions to help you apply first aid or otherwise make your pet as comfortable as possible. Follow any instructions carefully. 
  • Remain Calm - Remain calm and be extra cautious around your pet. When an animal is in pain they often react negatively towards anyone trying to help and may bite or scratch.
  • Bring Your Pet In For Care - Do not put yourself at risk! Safely bring your pet to our Clackamas veterinary clinic or one of the after-hours emergency vet locations above.

Emergency FAQs

These are our most frequently asked questions we've received from clients about bringing a pet in for emergency care at Clackamas Pet Clinic

  • Do I need to call ahead?

    Every weekday until 4 pm, our team at Clackamas Pet Clinic provides emergency and urgent veterinary care for cats and dogs. It's always best to contact us in advance if you can, but we understand that this may not always be possible in emergency situations. 

    If we are unable to fit your pet into our schedule, we recommend visiting one of the after-hours emergency vet locations listed above.  

  • When is your clinic open?

    Our veterinarians see walk-in emergency cases up until 4 pm on weekdays.

  • What situations require emergency veterinary care?

    The following situations are examples of emergencies that require immediate care:

    • Injuries to the eye(s)
    • Severe bleeding or bleeding that doesn't stop
    • Refusal to drink for 24 hours or more
    • Obvious signs of pain or extreme anxiety
    • Severe vomiting or diarrhea; 2+ episodes in 24-hours
    • Choking, difficulty breathing, or continuous coughing/gagging
    • Fractured bones or severe lameness
    • Bleeding from nose, mouth, rectum, or blood in the urine
    • Inability to urinate or pass feces, or pain associated with urinating or passing feces
    • Your pet has ingested something poisonous (such as antifreeze, xylitol, chocolate, rodent poison, etc.)
    • Heat stress or heatstroke
    • Seizures and/or staggering
    • Unconsciousness
  • How long will we have to wait to see the vet?

    Similar to a human doctor's office, the emergency room at our  Clackamas pet clinic can be unpredictable and you may need to wait. 

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

    If we are unable to fit an emergency appointment into our vets' schedule, we recommend you visit one of the 24/7 animal emergency hospitals listed above. 

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

    Some veterinary emergencies require intensive overnight care. At Clackamas Pet Clinic 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.

  • What types of animals do you treat?

    Our emergency veterinarians are experienced with cats and dogs.
