Critical Care

Do you know who to call in the event of a pet emergency?

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 Pendleton Veterinary Clinic, we want you to know that you’ve got a dedicated team in your corner. You can rest easy knowing that we’ll be there for you in your time of need.

Our hospital is equipped to provide life-saving critical care at a moment’s notice. 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 companion’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
  • Ingestion of a foreign object or toxic substance
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts, lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Vomiting or diarrhea lasting longer than 24 hours
  • Bleeding
  • Trauma, such as a fall or being hit by a car
  • Swollen or tender abdomen
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Lameness
  • Disorientation
  • Foaming at the mouth
  • Convulsions/seizures
  • Loss of consciousness

If you notice your companion exhibiting any of these signs, it’s time to call for help right away. At Pendleton Veterinary Clinic, 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.

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 Pendleton Veterinary Clinic will be here to provide the highest level of care available. You can count on us!

      The staff here is phenomenal! They were so kind and really great with our fur baby. He can be a little shy at first, but warmed right up to them. They have a clean clinic and really care about their clients here. We look forward to our next check up. 😁

      I was very happy after taking my animals to two other vet's in the last couple of years. We were looking for the best medication to help with my dogs anxiety and Dr. Crabtree and his staff got it right on the first try! The staff went above and beyond to help me get my records from our past vets. Thank you all for a great experience. See you soon!

      we came to Dr. Crabtree for help with our boy, Remi. he was amazing, and gave us the tools to make Remi very comfortable in his last days. he was spoiled beyond belief and even had a party! sadly we had to say goodbye to him on 1/20, and were so upset i forgot to call Dr Crabtree to tell him, but apparently Northwood did. today we recieved a card and the kind words and messages were so heart warming. i highly reccomend PVC. our future pets will absolutely be patients! thank you Dr Crabtree & Staff.. youre amazing.
