I brought my dog up there for emergency care. He had been hit by a car. The staff was so caring and compassionate in fact they met me at the door and wheeled him immediately into the back so the doctor to look at him right away while I was getting checked in. During the entire visit the girls that worked there kept me informed on what was going on with my baby until the doctor was able to come speak with me. Before I left him there for care they allowed me to come in the back and see where he would be staying. All I can say was what an impressive facility. They have individual cribs for the animals to sleep in. So my boy felt like he was sleeping bed. I can not say enough wonderful things about this facility and how wonderful everyone that works there is. I would recommend this place to anyone.

This place is great! It's like Metro Trauma unit for your animal. My dog got out of the yard after midnight and got hit by a car. I called my family Vet's after hours number and I was instructed to call the Lorain County Animal Emergency Center because they would not be able to look at her until the morning. No way was I going to let my dog suffer til morning, So I looked up the number and gave them a call.. They were very professional from the first phone call. Once I got there they were awesome!! They treated my dog as good as I've been treated in an emergency room for myself! I was really Impressed!! Thank you Dr Talbott and Thank you to your staff!!

I thought they did a good job. One of the ladies there could have been a little more personable late Friday night, but the girl I dealt with Sunday morning, and the vet Nikki were friendly and nice to deal with. Drove up from Sandusky with my cat late at night, and was glad I went there. I would reccomend the
Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
