Your pet eats something he shouldn’t…is suddenly sick…or traumatically injured. Health problems, injuries and illness can happen quickly and many need immediate attention. Don’t wait! When your pet urgently needs to see a veterinarian, Aqueduct Animal Hospital offers urgent care services.
Aqueduct Animal Hospital has a veterinarian and staff on duty six days a week who are trained and equipped to handle urgent care visits — this means that the condition is not life-threatening but still can’t wait for an appointment. If you ever feel your pet needs urgent care, don’t hesitate to call or come in immediately. Our number is (518) 346-3467.
While we understand you may not always be able to call in advance, if you are able to do so it will help our staff be prepared for your pet’s arrival so the animal gets needed medical care that much quicker.
If you think your pet has eaten something poisonous:
Call us, or if after hours, contact the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center’s 24-hour hotline at (888) 426-4435. Trained toxicologists will consider the age and health of your pet, what was ingested, and then make a recommendation about what action should be taken.
