Veterinary Emergency Services

When a pet emergency strikes, quick and expert care is essential to stabilise your furry friend and ensure their well-being.

At Berwick Clyde Vet, we take pride in being equipped and trained to handle a wide range of pet emergencies during our normal operating hours. Our dedicated team is ready to provide immediate assistance to pets facing crises, including injuries from road accidents, skirmishes, seizures, and poisoning incidents such as rat bait or chocolate ingestion.

Here’s how we can help:

Emergency Stabilisation

In times of crisis, time is of the essence. Our veterinarians are well-prepared to assess and stabilize pets facing emergencies promptly. Whether your pet requires oxygen therapy, IV fluids, pain management, or wound care, our team can provide the critical care needed to stabilize their condition.

Emergency Surgeries

Certain emergencies demand surgical intervention to save a pet’s life or prevent further suffering. Berwick Clyde Vet is equipped to perform emergency surgeries, including but not limited to:

Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus (GDV) Surgery: GDV, or bloat, is a life-threatening condition requiring immediate surgical correction. Our skilled surgeons swiftly alleviate this critical issue.

Urethrotomies: This procedure resolves urinary obstructions, often seen in male cats. Our team swiftly clears the blockage, ensuring normal urination.

C-Sections: When pregnant pets face labour complications, we can preform emergency C-sections, ensuring safe delivery.

Wound Repair and Trauma Surgery: From lacerations to fractures, we expertly handle traumatic injuries requiring surgical intervention.

Bee Stings & Anaphylaxis: For allergic reactions to bee stings, we provide immediate care during regular hours, including necessary medications.

Heat Stroke: In warmer months, rapid treatment for heatstroke is crucial. Visit us immediately for expert cooling methods and care.

Foreign Bodies / Obstructions: Pets’ curiosity sometimes leads to ingesting objects. Suspect an obstruction? Our diagnostic tests and surgical expertise ensure their well-being.

Emergency Care During Normal Operating Hours

At Berwick Clyde Vet, we understand that emergencies can happen at any time. During our regular operating hours, we prioritise pet emergencies and see them promptly.

Calling ahead to alert the team of your situation would be ideal, but sometimes in the case of an emergency it may not be an option. When it comes to an emergency, you don’t need to book an appointment, just head straight to the clinic for help.
