Critical Care

Do you know who to call should your pet require emergency care?

As a loving pet parent, you never want to see your four-legged family member in any kind of distress. Unfortunately, unexpected illnesses and sudden accidents happen. At Santaluz Animal Care, we want you to know that you’ve got a dedicated team of experienced professionals in your corner.

Our facility is equipped to provide life-saving critical care at a moment’s notice. With a team skilled in emergency medicine, we can quickly diagnose the problem and deliver timely and effective care. Most importantly, we’ll handle your loved one’s case with the utmost compassion, doing everything possible to achieve a positive outcome.

Some of the signs that your companion may need urgent medical attention include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Ingestion of a toxic substance or foreign object 
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts, lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Vomiting or diarrhea lasting longer than 24 hours
  • Bleeding
  • Trauma, such as from a fall or being hit by a car
  • Swollen or tender abdomen
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Lameness
  • Disorientation
  • Foaming at the mouth
  • Convulsions/seizures
  • Loss of consciousness

If you notice any of these signs, seek professional help right away. At Santaluz Animal Care, we always recommend calling ahead when an emergency occurs. This allows us to assess the situation, offer first aid instructions and prepare the hospital and our team for your pet’s arrival. Of course, should your pet’s emergency be too urgent for a phone call, don’t hesitate to come directly in for immediate attention.

We genuinely hope you never experience the need for emergency veterinary care. If you do, however, we want you to know who to call. The team at Santaluz Animal Care will be here to provide the highest level of care available.
