Why You Should Call Your Vet Prior To Arriving

Why You Should Call Your Vet Prior To Arriving

We understand your pet is a family member at Friendly Animal Hospital in Huntington Beach, CA. We are happy to help you ensure the best possible care for your pet at all stages of life. We always encourage our pet owners to call us beforehand for several reasons. Here are a few things to consider.

Call to Update Information

Call our veterinarian before your pet arrives at our clinic to update your pet's medical records. You might have new information about your pet that you want to share with us. Some examples include the information listed below:

  • New medication
  • Developed allergies
  • Moved to a new address

There Is a Pet Emergency

If there is a pet emergency, call us immediately. It's possible to treat your pet quickly if you provide us with as much information as possible. For instance, your dog might have been hit by a car. We would like to know if you're on your way to an emergency visit or if any life-threatening injuries they might have sustained. The more information we have, the better we can help your pet.

Signs of an Emergency

You have an essential responsibility to realize how serious your pet's condition is. Emergencies aren't always just trauma-related events. If your pet isn't eating or drinking, has a bloody stool, labored breathing, or swallowed a foreign substance, these are all signs of an emergency. It's also important to realize that even if you think your pet is in good health, it can still experience an emergency. If you're concerned about your pet, asking our veterinarian to check them out while they're there for a routine visit doesn't hurt.
