As a loving pet parent, you never want to see your animal family member in distress. Unfortunately, unexpected illnesses and sudden accidents can occur at any time. The way you handle these types of situations can make all the difference in the world for your loved one. At Animal Hospital of Mt.

With staff members who are experienced in emergency medicine, we can quickly diagnose the problem and deliver the most timely and effective care. Most importantly, we will handle your loved one’s case with the utmost compassion, doing everything within our power to achieve a positive outcome.

Some of the signs that your pet may require urgent medical attention include:

  • Difficulty breathing

  • Broken bones
  • Cuts, lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Vomiting or diarrhea lasting longer than 24 hours

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Can not walk or stand

If you notice your companion exhibiting any of these signs, it’s time to call for help right away. At Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono, we always recommend calling ahead when an emergency occurs. This allows us to evaluate the situation and provide first aid instructions over the phone. It also lets us prepare the hospital and other team members for your pet’s arrival. Of course, should the nature of your pet’s emergency not allow time for a phone call, don’t hesitate to come directly in for immediate attention during our business hours.

We sincerely hope you never experience the need for urgent veterinary care. If you do, however, we want you to know who to call. The team at Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono will be here to provide the highest level of care available. You can count on us! Please call (570) 839-8116 for your urgent care needs.
