Finding the Right Emergency Surgery Veterinarian in San Jose

Veterinarian in Surgery

As pet owners, we’ve all been here before. Joey, your new two year old rescue Australian Kelpie (shoutout to the lovely rescues who work so hard to get these sweet pups to their new home) isn’t feeling so great. They’ve had trouble keeping food down, but you’re not sure if that’s the nervous jitters from their new environment or something more concerning. Maybe a day passes, and Joey takes a turn for the worse. Whether this is your first or your tenth pet, chances are you’re panicking a little bit. You take them to your new vet’s office only to find that your new pet has swallowed some mystery item and now has an obstructed bowel. And even worse? This vet can’t perform the surgery that will help Joey recover. How do you even go about finding a good emergency surgery veterinarian in San Jose?

As with most things in life, the first step is not to panic. Thankfully there are options for where to take your pet to get the kind of medical care that they need. Chances are you’ve waited, as many pet owners do, until first thing on the weekend to get your pet checked out. You’ll first need to rule out the San Jose emergency surgery veterinarians who don’t have any weekend hours. Check. Next, you’ll need to consider whether a vet has the ability to perform the kind of surgery you need. Calling around to the clinics is one way to do it — or you could simply choose one that offers the most comprehensive surgical services. Their veterinarians and staff are likely especially talented when it comes to performing any and all types of surgical procedures.

Finding Your Emergency Surgery Veterinarian…Before the Emergency

Thinking ahead (hey, we’re optimistic here!), it’d sure be nice to not have to travel back and forth to the vet’s office to pick up pain medications, antibiotics, probiotics and anything else your pet needs to recover well post-surgery. A veterinary clinic that offers home delivery on prescriptions is just the thing you need. It’ll make those days and weeks after the stressful and hectic health scare just a little bit easier on you and your family.
