What to do in a Pet Emergency in Memphis

If your dog or cat requires emergency care, stabilize them for transport, call us and get to our veterinary hospital right away.

Basic First-Aid Strategies Can Be Helpful 

To stabilize your pet for transport, basic first-aid strategies may help. Once you feel confident transporting your pet, get to our hospital immediately. Call ahead if you can.

DOGS

Slowly and calmly approach your dog, kneel down and call their name. If there is any indication of aggression back away and call for help. If your pet seems passive, construct a makeshift stretcher and gently lift him or her onto it supporting the neck and back areas. 

CATS 

To help prevent your cat from biting if they experience pain as you stabilize them, gently place a blanket or towel over the head. Slowly lift the cat and place him or her in an open-topped carrier or box, supporting the head and neck area carefully. 

Continuing Care After The Emergency

Our experienced veterinary team is here to see you through a pet emergency. When it's time to return to your primary veterinarian for post-emergency and ongoing care, we'll ensure that they have access to our records of the care we have provided for your pet.
