Emergency Care

Serious health problems, injuries, and illness require immediate care. When your pet urgently needs to see a veterinarian, the caring and skilled team at Animal Hospital of Old Saybrook is here.

If you can, call us at (860) 399-6249 to alert us to your emergency and to let us know you’re on your way to the hospital. While we understand you may not always be in a position to call in advance, if you are able to do so it will help our staff be prepared for your pet’s arrival so the animal gets needed medical care that much quicker.

Unsure if your pet has an actual medical emergency? We understand that it can be difficult to determine if your pet requires immediate medical care. Because medical issues can quickly progress into more serious problems, we urge you to call us so we can help assess whether your pet needs emergency care.

Our emergency services include:

  • Trauma & shock resuscitation
  • Emergency surgery and hospitalization
  • Advanced anesthesia monitoring
  • Diagnostic lab work
  • Digital radiology, ultrasound & ECG
  • Endoscopic procedures
  • Toxic substance treatment
  • Oxygen support
  • Fluid therapy
  • On-site pharmacy

If you think your pet has eaten something poisonous:

Call us, or if after hours, contact the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center’s 24-hour hotline at (888) 426-4435. Trained toxicologists will consider the age and health of your pet, what was ingested, and then make a recommendation about what action should be taken.
