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 immediately. If you have an emergency prior to our closing for the evening, our receptionists will check with the veterinarians on duty.

Depending on your emergency, our veterinarians may recommend transporting your pet to one of the emergency clinics rather than the Animal Hospital if they feel your pet can receive more condition-appropriate treatment and/or may possibly require an overnight stay with intensive care. 

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
