No pet owner ever wants to imagine their cherished animal companion experiencing an emergency situation, but unfortunately accidents happen and unexpected illnesses occur. In the event that your pet requires critical or emergency care,  it’s comforting to know that you can count on the team at Main West Animal Hospital to be there.

We offer comprehensive critical care services, and are available to handle most medical emergencies.

Common emergency situations include:

  • Accidental poisonings
  • Critical injuries from a fall or accident
  • Sudden onset of serious illnesses
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Fractures

The moment an emergency occurs, we’ll be there to step in and manage the situation as efficiently and effectively as possible, providing the necessary care to improve the chances of a positive outcome. Our team is experienced in delivering critical care with swiftness, confidence and compassion. We’ll be ready to assist at a moment’s notice.

Whenever possible, we always recommend that you call our hospital first, prior to bringing your pet in for treatment. This allows us to advise you on specific first aid techniques that you may be able to administer to help manage the situation, and it also provides us with the opportunity to better prepare for your pet’s arrival. Of course, should the situation not allow time for you to call ahead, please do not hesitate to bring your pet directly to our clinic for immediate attention.

At Main West Animal Hospital, we sincerely hope you never have to experience a pet emergency, but we want you to know that should the need for critical veterinary care arise, you can count on us.  We are very proud to partner with the Niagara Veterinary Emergency Clinic to provide comprehensive emergency care after our regular office hours and on holidays.
