Handling Emergencies for Better Pet Health

Bringing a pet into your home and family changes the way that you perceive your surroundings. Although a pet dog or cat can provide unconditional love and helps you enjoy your home, emergencies can happen at the most unexpected times. Visiting our emergency veterinary centre in Studio City, CA allows you to handle emergencies and maintain a pet's health at any time of the day or night.

Basics for Pet Health

Veterinarians help you maintain the health of your pets by providing appropriate medical services and preventative care. Depending on the type of pet that you bring into your home, the appropriate care and management of your pet's health depends on several factors.

Basic factors that promote good health in any pet include:

  • Regular visits to a veterinarian for appropriate preventative care

  • On-time shots and booster shots

  • Diet management, including feeding a pet appropriate foods recommended by veterinarians

  • Regular exercise

  • Good hygiene

In general, you want to keep your pet healthy by providing an environment that encourages exercise, playing and healthy dietary habits. Follow any veterinary recommendations when it relates to your pet's basic healthcare needs. Feel free to discuss any concerns about pet health with our professionals, as well, so that you prevent lifestyle problems or health concerns.

Handling Pet Emergencies

Emergencies can happen at any time and you want to make sure that you handle unexpected problems as early as possible. Problems that can arise include:

  • cat-with-pet-ownerPoisoning from pets getting into cleaning supplies, eating something unhealthy or eating foods that cause sicknesses

  • Injuries from an accident

  • Fights among different pets that lead to injuries

  • Allergic reactions, such as a reaction to plants or a bug bite

  • Loss of appetite or vomiting

  • Odd behaviors

  • Sudden and unexplained changes to a pet's weight

Visit our emergency veterinary centre serving Studio City and the Los Angeles area for problems that occur at unexpected times and that raise concerns about your pet's health. Our emergency clinic is available when your regular veterinarian office may be closed, so you can seek treatment for emergencies whenever it occurs. We do not require an appointment before you seek treatment and we have veterinarians available to help with your pet's health when you walk into our clinic.

  • "Sammers is an 11 year old, Black, Domestic Short Hair Cat. His owner noticed that Sammers was pacing, walking around in circles at home and crying out in pain.

    "I would like to thank all of the staff who helped with Sammer's UTI. He was miserable, and you guys made him better. I cannot thank you enough for helping him. It is great to have a place to go when all the other vet clinics are closed.""

  • "Kahlua is a very special service dog. He was brought in by his owner when she noticed that Kahlua was acting very painful and didn't want to jump. After a thorough exam Kahlua went home with some pain meds. Kahlua's mom stopped by our Facebook page to send us a note on his progress.

    "Just wanted to thank Dr. Cavanaugh, straight from the heart for seeing our Kahlua and putting our worries to rest. It was hilarious trying to get him to take his Tramadol.... cheese would not work but the Chunky Skippy did the trick. WE THINK YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!! So thank you, straight from the heart.""
