Top Rated Local® Veterinarian


It can be rather frightening to come home from work or a night on the town only to discover your pet suffering. What makes it even worse is when you are unsure as to why it is suffering. When you have any doubt as to why your pet is suffering, seek the services of an emergency vet in Valley Center right away. To be better prepared in case this happens to you, here is a list of some of the more common pet emergencies found in pet clinics all over the nation.

Pain– There can be any number of reasons your pet is suffering pain and it can be displayed in numerous ways. Some of the symptoms of pain include pacing, restlessness, panting and even aggression. If your pet is acting strange and you suspect pain could be the culprit, give us a call.

Breathing Difficulties– Compressed or otherwise compromised lungs and airway is a common reason for increased respiratory effort in  for your pet. This can occur for several reasons including toxins, heart failure and allergic reactions. A pet who has a difficult time breathing needs to be evaluated by your emergency vet as soon as possible.

Seizures– Seizures are caused by abnormal activities in the brain and can be quite scary. Seizures can be caused by tumours, swelling in the brain or even low blood sugar levels. Any type of seizure can be life-threatening, so see your vet right away.

If your pet is experiencing any of the symptoms above, give us a call and we can help.






Please come right over in the event of a pet emergency. Our technicians will assess the nature of the emergency and determine if we can initiate treatment or transfer to a 24 hour medical facility. We can treat the vast majority of emergency cases on-site.

With advance notice, we can schedule convenient appointments at your home. We can take the hastle out of the experience by performing pet examinations on your property. This exceptional service was created to assist the elderly with large breed older dogs, owners with very scared cats.
