Emergencies

Animal Hospital of Statesville has expanded our hours to serve you and your pets. While we are not a 24-hour hospital, our hours will often give you an option for emergency care without leaving Statesville. 

Please call us if you have an emergency and need to be seen. If we can fit you into our schedule, we will ask you to come on immediately.  We are technically NOT an emergency hospital, so if we have a full schedule, we may need to refer you to a nearby emergency hospital to get the care your pet needs more expediently. Calling ahead saves you time by helping us determine whether we are able to treat your pet or if you'd be better served by driving directly to an emergency veterinary facility.

Emergency hospitals forward your pet’s records to us so that we may be informed and can more easily follow up on your pet’s condition.

Conditions that are considered emergencies:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Excessive coughing
  • Trouble urinating
  • Eating a toxic substance
  • Broken bones
  • Hit by car 
  • Collapse
  • Vomiting
  • Blood in vomit, urine or stool
  • Eye injury
  • Difficulty walking
  • Lacerations or wounds
  • Unusual fatigue (tiredness)
  • Crying out in pain
  • Trouble giving birth
  • Difficulty seeing, or bumping into things
  • Snake bite
  • Seizures
