Critical Care

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.

Our hospital is equipped to provide life-saving critical care at a moment’s notice. 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!

      Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon has taken care of my Australian shepherd Roland since he was 9 weeks old. They have been absolutely amazing. They remember us every time we come in and Roland absolutely loves visiting the vet.

      We have been clients of the Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon for the past 15 years. Our cat, Squeak, has had a prolonged illness for the past 1 1/2 years. We said goodbye to her last week. We want to acknowledge the excellent care we have received from everyone at the clinic. Dr. Gass and his staff have been courteous, helpful and very caring and have gone far out of the way to accommodate our needs. John and Marilyn thank you!

      After receiving denials of same day “urgent” appointments from our current vet (of 6 years) twice in a 6 month period, Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon took care of us and saw our dog in both times of need. We officially will never go anywhere else .
