What symptoms should I look for to decide if my pet needs an veterinary emergency clinic?

Boy, that’s a tough one.

Let me put it this way.

What if… it was the middle of the day, you had the afternoon off, and your vet said they could get you in immediately, for free, to check out your pet? Would you go?

If your answer is “nah, I don’t think my pet is that sick” then you probably don’t need the ER.

If your answer is “I don’t think my pet is that sick, but since it’s free, I can make the time” then you should use that same logic to get yourself to the ER. $100 spent tonight may buy you a night of restful sleep if nothing else, and that peace is priceless.

If I call the vet emergency clinic, will they tell me honestly if I need to come in or not?

ER workers are trained to answer calls like this: “if the owner is concerned, tell them to come in, and advise them of our after-hours emergency fee”.

You can (and should) certainly call first, but expect them to try to convince you to come in.

Do I really need to call before I come in? Aren’t these places walk-in?

Sort of. After hours, there is a distinct possibility that your ER of choice is being staffed by only one vet, and is busy doing emergency surgery on someone else’s pet. If you call first, the ER can let you know if they’re available to see you, or if you should go to another clinic.

Every veterinary emergency clinic in Indianapolis keeps a phone list of the other ER’s by the phone to refer you to, in case they’re busy.

That’s why you need to keep this blog post handy, in case your ER of choice refers you somewhere else.

Always call first.

The emergency vet clinics of Indianapolis are all outstanding at what they do. We here at Leo’s Pet Care wish you the best of luck, and your pet the best of health!

When you’re done at the ER, if you find yourself needing a great little general practice for ongoing veterinary care, please call Leo’s Pet Care at (317) 721-7387!
