Emergency veterinary services in Stark County, Ohio

It can be difficult for a pet owner to know when a situation is an emergency. Our professionals are available for those times when you are unsure and your regular veterinarian is closed. Whether it’s an obvious emergency or symptoms that could indicate a problem, we provide emergency veterinary services in Canton, Akron and the surrounding area. Don’t wait to get your pet checked. Some conditions can quickly become life-threatening for your dog or cat.

  • Repeated or unproductive vomiting can be a sign of illness, poisoning, an intestinal obstruction or twisted stomach and should be checked immediately by a veterinarian. Repeated vomiting can quickly dehydrate your pet.
  • If you suspect your pet has ingested a toxin, such as a pesticide or antifreeze, or has been exposed to a toxin through a snake or spider bite, don’t delay getting treatment. Many plants and foods can be toxic to pets even in small amounts and cause everything from vomiting to death. Get a list from your veterinarian which plants and foods to avoid.
  • If your pet has been hit by a car or experienced a fall, immediate treatment is crucial to identify internal injuries that may not be evident to you.
  • Traumatic injuries, such as broken bones, bites, gunshot wounds or wounds from sharp objects, should treated immediately.
  • Labored breathing may be a symptom of serious respiratory distress and can quickly lead to brain and organ damage.
