Animal Emergency Care

Dublin Animal Hospital Urgent Care

In a life-threatening emergency, we STRONGLY encourage you to take your pet to whichever animal emergency care clinic is nearest to you. They are staffed and equipped to handle animal emergencies, and would be able to begin care quickly upon your arrival.

While Dublin Animal Hospital is not an emergency clinic, we do our best to accommodate our client’s medical emergencies. Many of our staff members have experience working in emergency veterinary medicine, and are very good at working with animals in shock or pain.

It is important to know where the nearest emergency clinic is. Please take the time to locate the emergency hospital closest to your home so you don’t need to look up directions while your pet is critically ill. Also, be careful that you pick an emergency clinic that is open when you need them. Some hospitals are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year, but others are only open at night or certain days of the week.

Injured Wildlife

Even though we do care for exotic pets, by law we cannot care for wildlife due to licensing. Please contact the Wild Forever Foundation for injured wildlife, including wild rabbits, birds, squirrels, raccoons, snakes, turtles, deer, fox, opossum, etc.
