Welcome to the Pet Emergency clinic. We are here to help clients handle out-of hours emergencies and nursing care.
Your family veterinarian is your pet's best friend and advocate. Yet your family DVM cannot be open 24/7 and be really fresh and alert when your pet needs her/him.
We are here to handle that time period that is outside normal business hours. Our expert DVM's and staff will treat your pet as you would wish, with all info going back to your DVM when we are through.
The best way to avoid emergencies is to follow a few simple rules as follows:
1) Feed only a high quality diet and do not let your pet be overweight.
2) Observe the leash laws
3) Keep vaccinations current and have at least annual wellness checkups at your DVM's.
4) Own breeds of dogs and cats that are known to have few health problems.
For times when even the above was not enough, the Pet Emergency Clinic is here for you. Just come in or call 337-562-0400.
"Lets be careful out there."
Dr. John Emerson
