Critical Care at a Critical Time
At Animal Emergency Hospital of Central Connecticut, caring for your pet in an emergency is more than a professional specialty—it’s our passion. We understand the stress an emergency can cause, and it is our goal to ease the suffering both you and your pet are experiencing.
When an emergency strikes, it can be difficult to “keep calm and carry on,” but that is precisely what you must do. Your pet is counting on you to know they are in trouble, and they trust you will know how to help. Our staff is here to support you through this time and assist you in whatever you may need to help your pet recover.
The following pages are intended to help you better understand your pet’s emergency, how you can help, and the services we provide to our critical care patients:
- What is an emergency—Know the common warning signs of an emergency. If you are unsure if your pet’s condition is truly an emergency, this page will help you determine whether urgent care is needed.
- What to do in an emergency—Animals in pain often bite. Before you bring your pet in for treatment, know how to ensure the safety of you and your pet.
- Emergency surgery—Many emergency situations require some type of surgical procedure. Learn more about what services we provide in an emergency situation.
- Emergency diagnostic techniques—It is vitally important to your pet that we treat the emergency he or she is experiencing, not create a new one. Learn how we diagnose your pet’s condition and how that diagnosis ensures greater success in recovery.
In addition to our diagnostic and surgery services, Animal Emergency Hospital of Central Connecticut also offers oxygen therapy for your pet. This noninvasive therapy increases the concentration of oxygen available to your pet, which allows him or her to breathe with less effort. Oxygen can be given to animals in the following ways:
- Face mask
- Nasal cannulas that sit in the nostrils
- Nasal catheter (tube in the nostril)
- Dedicated oxygen cage
If you have any questions about your pet’s condition or the services we provide, please do not hesitate to contact us immediately.
