Emergency Veterinary Care Northwest Austin

Many of Austin's family veterinarians are not open on nights, weekends, and holidays. Our after-hour veterinarians strive to create a safe and comfortable atmosphere for pet owners and their pets during emergency situations. We treat many different kinds of emergency situations including, trauma, heat stroke, snake bite, breathing difficulties, and seizures. One potentially serious situation our emergency veterinary clinic often treats is the accidental ingestion of a toxin. Many common plants, such as Sago Palm, may make your pet extremely ill. Some of the dog symptoms of sago palm toxicity are vomiting, bloody diarrhea, depression, and yellow mucus membranes. Cat symptoms are similar to the dog symptoms If you suspect that your pet has ingested sago palm or any other poison or toxin, including medications, call one of our two after-hour veterinary hospitals immediately.
