What Is An Emergency Vet?
It is a Veterinary Surgeon who was trained in Emergency Critical Care, therefore holding the knowledge required to stabilise the most critical, sick or injured pet.
These particular Vets are fast and efficient. Facts-oriented and to-the-point individuals, they set their particular skills at your pets' service.
They know that speed is of the essence in the emergency field: identifying quickly the problem and acting directly and efficiently to manage it.
At Karas Vet Clinic, our Emergency Vets both rely on their sharp clinical instinct built on hundreds of hours of emergency consultations and on a hospital-like state of the art mobile kit (oxygen, surgical kit, ultrasound, blood-work, blood pressure ...) to help the pets in need.
When Do I Need An Emergency Vet?
At Karas Vet Clinic, we believe in your instinct. When things are not right with your pet, you can usually feel it. In doubt, better to reach out. We will help you.
That being said with cats and dogs, it is no small task to read them. And even when you realise something is off, it is even harder to know if it is an emergency or if it could simply wait.
Some situations will of course create little doubt: road traffic accident, a fall or any acute traumatic experience. Others will be more pernicious: a change in energy, in behaviour or eating habits. And all the rest in between when you simply aren't sure if you should wait or call.
Our Trained Veterinary Team is at the end of the line to discuss the situation and make a decision with you.
