Emergency Veterinary Services

Is your pet experiencing any behaviors or symptoms you are concerned about? Contact our office right away for daytime emergency care. If you are an established client, we will also provide care after hours.

Steps to Take In A Pet Emergency

If you are experiencing a veterinary emergency, follow the steps below.

  • Call Ahead If Possible - During regular business hours call us right away. After hours, established clients can call us. Our on-call veterinary assistant will help assess the situation, then consult our on-call veterinarian, who will provide after-hours care including hospitalization for emergencies.
  • Follow Instructions Provided - When you call to let our emergency care team know you are on your way, instructions may be provided to help you apply first aid or otherwise make your pet as comfortable as possible. Follow these instructions carefully.
  • Remain Calm - Remain calm and be extra careful around your pet. When an animal is in pain they often react negatively towards anyone trying to help and could bite or scratch.
  • Bring Your Pet In For Care - Do not put yourself at risk! Safely bring your pet to our regional veterinary center in Jesup.

    • Severe bleeding or bleeding that doesn't stop
    • Obvious signs of pain or extreme anxiety
    • Choking, difficulty breathing, or continuous coughing/gagging
    • Fractured bones or severe lameness

    • Inability to urinate or pass feces, or pain associated with urinating or passing feces

    • Refusal to drink for 24 hours or more
    • Unconsciousness
  • How long will we have to wait to see the vet?

    Our regional veterinary center in Jesup is just like a human doctor's office—it can be unpredictable and you may have to wait. 

    We cannot predict what cases we will see and when they will arrive. If possible, call ahead to find out whether we can provide emergency care for your dog or cat. 

    After hours, established clients will speak with our on-call veterinary assistant and coordinate with them so an on-call veterinarian can provide care.

  • What happens if my pet needs to stay in the hospital?

    Some veterinary emergencies require intensive overnight care. At Wolfe Animal Hospital we provide overnight care for animals in need.

    While in our care, our dedicated team will treat your pet as if they were our own.

  • What types of animals do you treat?

    We are the only veterinary hospital or emergency facility in the county or 30-mile radius. Our emergency veterinarians are mostly experienced with cats and dogs.
