Not wanting to let my daughter's 16 year old cat, Chan--who had been her constant companion through some pretty rough years of her life--suffer anymore, she made the decision and I took him to Veterinary Emergency Clinic to find caring professionals who understood the tears and necessity to come in. The Dr. (Lassiter, I believe) allowed me some time after the IV insertion to calm Chan-Cat and then came in to quickly administer the medication to a barely breathing animal. Two breaths later, he passed peacefully. The Dr. stayed with me a few more moments and was compassionate and caring...altogether a positive experience for such a happening. Thanks to the caring staff and Dr. for helping ease suffering of a very loved animal.

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.
