Emergency Vet in Colorado Springs

You have experienced every moment with your pet, both big and small, so you know when something isn’t quite right. If you are concerned about your pet’s well-being and think it might be an emergency, do not hesitate to get it checked out. We understand emergencies can happen at any time, so if our doors are open, then we will do everything we can to ensure your pet is seen. At Ponderosa Veterinary Clinic, we offer emergency care in Colorado Springs by assessing the needs of your pet and adjusting other appointments, if necessary, to ensure your pet’s immediate safety is taken care of. If you need an emergency veterinarian in Colorado Springs outside of our hours of operation, or we are unable to handle the immediate needs, then we will provide the appropriate recommendations for pet emergency care and make sure your pet is looked after and has excellent veterinary care.

Experienced Veterinarians in Southern Colorado

Our experienced veterinarians and professionals will always approach every situation with detail and insight to ensure your pet is in the best hands and receives compassionate care. We never take any situation lightly, as we know that symptoms can present themselves differently in every pet. After all, when cats and dogs are in pain, their instinct is to mask it so they don’t appear weak to potential predators. Our team of Colorado Springs vets have extensive training in veterinary medicine and experience in veterinary emergencies and will analyze, plan and protect your pet’s health as quickly as possible.

Signs Your Pet May Need Emergency Veterinary Care

If you sense that something isn’t quite right with your cat or dog, trust your instincts and prepare for a possible emergency situation. See the above common signs that your pet may need emergency care. If you’re uncertain, call us or bring your pet in so that our compassionate, experienced team of emergency Colorado Springs veterinarians can provide the proper diagnosis, critical care services, and quality care.

Emergency Veterinarians Near Me

At Ponderosa, our process for emergency veterinary care is similar to when we visit an emergency room for medical care. Our compassionate support staff, technicians and DVMs will quickly and thoroughly assess the situation, while keeping open communication with you. If there are patients scheduled ahead of your pet, then we will work with the entire team to make sure your pet gets taken care of as soon as possible. We always place the safety of pets before anything else; so if we are not able to successfully offer the emergency pet service needed due to unavailability, or if we are at capacity with other urgent patients, then we will provide the appropriate recommendations for veterinary services so your pet can receive top notch and excellent care.

After assessing your pet’s condition, we will provide a diagnostic plan and communicate our findings with you. Our collaborative team will be available to answer any questions you may have about the diagnosis and treatment care plan.

Trusted Emergency Vet Care In Colorado Springs

In the event that we are unable to handle your emergency and provide specialty care, we will recommend you to our emergency vet partner, Powers Pet Emergency for 24 hour care in Colorado Springs. We trust that the staff will provide care for you and your pet with the same level of compassion that we would. If we are not open when your pet is experiencing an emergency, are at capacity with other critical patients, or if your pet’s emergency diagnosis concludes that they need to be admitted overnight, then we will highly recommend you see our partners at Powers Pet Emergency. If your pet is already a part of the Ponderosa family, then we will make sure to communicate your pet’s history to our partner as quickly as possible. Your pet’s happiness and safety is our number one priority, and we only partner with people whose priorities align with ours and who provide great care.

Pet Safety Is Our Top Priority

At Ponderosa Veterinary Clinic, we strive to provide compassionate care and veterinary expertise while prioritizing your pet’s safety and comfort. Emergencies are called so for a reason. We respect the necessity of being flexible and understanding during a time when you and your pet may be afraid. If you visit us during our regular business hours, then we will assess the critical needs of your dog or cat and adjust our schedule accordingly to make sure they are taken care of as soon as possible. 

If your pet is displaying any common signs that emergency pet care is needed, then don’t hesitate to call us or visit our office in Colorado Springs. While many emergency needs are impossible to prevent, such as an injured pet, some emergencies can be prevented through wellness exams, vaccinations, digital X-rays, and dental exams. Contact our team of caring experts online or call us to schedule a preventative care appointment, and chat with your veterinarian about being prepared for an emergency situation.
