Do you know who to call in the event of a pet emergency?

As a loving pet parent, you never want to see your four-legged family member in distress. Unfortunately, unexpected illnesses and sudden accidents can occur at any time. The way you handle these types of situations can make all the difference in the world for your loved one. At Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon, we want you to know that you’ve got a dedicated team in your corner. You can rest easy knowing that we’ll be there for you in your time of need.

With staff members who are experienced in emergency medicine, we can quickly diagnose the problem and deliver the most timely and effective care. Most importantly, we will handle your companion’s case with the utmost compassion, doing everything within our power to achieve a positive outcome.

Some of the signs that your pet may require urgent medical attention include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Ingestion of a foreign object or toxic substance
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts, lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Vomiting or diarrhea lasting longer than 24 hours
  • Bleeding
  • Trauma, such as 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 your companion exhibiting any of these signs, it’s time to call for help right away. At Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon, we always recommend calling ahead when an emergency occurs. This allows us to evaluate the situation and provide first aid instructions over the phone. It also lets us prepare the hospital and other team members for your pet’s arrival. Of course, should the nature of your pet’s emergency not allow time for a phone call, don’t hesitate to come directly in for immediate attention.

We sincerely hope you never experience the need for urgent veterinary care. If you do, however, we want you to know who to call. The dedicated team at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon will be here to provide the highest level of care available. You can count on us!

      Incredibly responsive, caring, knowledgeable Drs. and staff that understand how special pets are to every family.

      We have been with Ashwaubenon Animal Hospital for 8 years and 6 pets. We've seen every Dr., and they have taken care of our "family" to the end. The staff is always so helpful and go out of their way to make sure that we are taken care of everytime, no matter what is going on. I can't thank them enough for the kindness they have shown and continue to show. It is the only place that I will take my babies! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

      The staff is informative and caring. That being said today is not the first time I've experienced displeasure at the front desk. When I choose a facility and spend 400 dollars on basic care for just one of my two fluffy friends I expect a degree of kindness that I did not receive. I never have issues with vet techs/ vets and will return but with the expectation of poor service checking in and unfortunately paying the bill.
