A pet emergency can strike at any time. While there are steps you can take to prepare yourself, it is impossible to conceive of every potential scenario, let alone deal with a serious emergency all by yourself. Should you have an unexpected injury, illness, toxicity, or other urgent situation on your hands, you can bring your pet straight to Black Creek Veterinary Hospital for help.

We will see any emergency during our regular hours, when our veterinarians are in and prepared to see patients. Simply call us at (904) 282-0499 to let us know the nature of your case and that you’re on the way.

Any emergency outside of our daytime hours should refer to:

Preparing for Pet Emergencies

While a serious emergency is a rare occurrence for the average pet owner, it’s never a bad idea to take some simple steps toward prevention and preparation. Many emergencies such as poisoning and fractures are common in dogs(who we all know have a tendency to wander and get into things they aren’t supposed to) but can certainly happen to cats, rabbits, pocket pets, and exotics too.

The staff of Black Creek Veterinary Hospital will always be more than happy to help however we can, with urgent care services, specialty referrals, and simple guidance. Your veterinarian will have plenty of knowledgeable advice on pet safety and basic emergency preparedness at home. Simply give us a call for some pointers, or to request an appointment for your animal companion.
