WHEN SECONDS COUNT

At WVG, we are equipped to handle emergencies both for cats and dogs, as well as your exotic pets. We understand there is nothing more frightening than having your precious pet rushed into the hospital for emergency treatment but “every second counts”.

What can I expect during this time?

Your pet will be escorted to our treatment area for an immediate assessment. You will be asked to sign an emergency consent form allowing the doctor to proceed with the necessary treatments needed to stabilize your pet. At this time, we will collect the emergency deposit.

What’s my $350 Emergency Deposit used for?

Once your pet is escorted to our treatment area, the steps required to stabilize your pet have begun. This is an example of what goes on behind the scenes:

  • The doctor and a skilled technician will be taking your pet’s vitals which are necessary in order to make the appropriate medical decisions.
  • An intravenous catheter may be placed for immediate access to needed medications.
  • If necessary, oxygen will be given.
  • Blood glucose will be taken to check your pet’s insulin level.
  • Radiographs and a blood draw may also be done.
  • Medications and fluids will be administered to help alleviate any pain and help keep your pet hydrated.

Keeping you informed

Once your pet has been stabilized, you will be escorted into an exam room where the doctor will speak with you and take down any additional history that may be relevant to the visit.

At this time the doctor will prepare a detailed medical treatment plan indicating what further treatments are recommended for your pet’s continued care. A member of the hospital staff will review this with you, explaining the importance of each item and/or treatment that is being recommended. Once the medical treatment plan has been thoroughly explained and we have answered all your questions, you will be asked for your authorization so that we may proceed with any further treatments.

WVG is here to help educate and support you, especially during these difficult times. You can trust that we will do whatever is necessary to help your precious pet.
