A pet is a part of the family, just like anyone else. At Northlake Animal Hospital, we are guided by our love of animals. Hence, we understand how upsetting and stressful it can be if your pet needs veterinary emergency services.

Why Choose Northlake Animal Hospital for Emergency Treatment?

Upon arrival at our animal hospital, you can rest assured that we will treat your pet like our own. We provide the best urgent care a pet can receive so they can return home safe and sound as quickly as possible. We are prepared and ready to care for your pet, no matter the emergency or time.

When Should I Visit the Veterinary for an Emergency?

Emergencies that require your pet to receive urgent medical attention are not so different from situations where a human would need urgent care. We can help you decide or, in some cases, even come to you.

Here are examples of situations in which you should bring your pet in for urgent attention:


  • Seizure
  • Diabetic crisis
  • Severe dehydration – from profuse vomiting and diarrhea
  • Heart failure
  • Internal Bleeding


  • Medical overdose
  • Ingestion of household products
  • Ingestion of human food toxic to pets


  • Hit by automobile
  • Attacked by another animal (pet or wild)
How Will My Pet Be Treated During an Emergency Visit?

Treating pets at our emergency animal hospital is similar to treating people in a hospital emergency room.

First, your pet is triaged to determine if their current state is critical. We will treat all pets according to the urgency of their condition. It is not a first-come, first-serve scenario. Our staff will provide a diagnosis along with a treatment plan. The emergency veterinarian will discuss the plan with you, reviewing your questions and concerns.
