Remember: you know your pet(s) better than anyone. If your pet seems to be acting different from normal or if he or she just does not seem right, we recommend trusting your intuition and seeking medical attention. If your pet needs immediate medical attention we highly recommend taking your pet to the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital
, which is available 24 hours a day.
Main WSU Vet Hospital Switchboard: 509-335-0711
If you suspect or know that your pet has eaten or been exposed to a toxic substance or product and need immediate assistance, again, please consider going to WSU or calling the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at 888-426-4435 (a fee may apply).
As a mobile veterinary service, while equipped to take care of many of your pets’ needs, we cannot provide immediate or intensive emergency care in your home. The WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital is located at 205 Ott Road in Pullman, WA.
Be prepared with methods of payment for your pets’ emergency care. Emergency care is often more expensive than routine care due to the intensity of diagnostics, monitoring, and treatment required. Delaying care to avoid emergency fees could put your pets’ life at risk. Planning ahead for financial coverage of emergencies, perhaps by having a separate account or credit card for emergency use only, or pet insurance, can save you a lot of stress when these situations happen.
