Emergency Care

IF YOU HAVE A SAN LUIS OBISPO PET EMERGENCY, HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.

IF YOUR SAN LUIS OBISPO PET IS HAVING DIFFICULTY BREATHING, JUMP IN THE CAR AND COME TO MISSION ANIMAL HOSPITAL. Mission Animal Hospital is your San Luis Obispo pet emergency clinic. We are located next to Trader Joe’s at 3973 S. Higuera St.  Mission Animal Hospital is open 7 days a week, and we’ll be waiting for you.

IF YOUR SAN LUIS OBISPO PET HAS BEEN INJURED:

  1. If your pet is bleeding, bandage the affected area.
  2. Do not let your pet lick at that area, as it could make them vomit.
  3. Call or come to Mission Animal Hospital in San Luis Obispo. 

IF YOUR SAN LUIS OBISPO DOG HAS INGESTED A TOXIN:

  1. If it happened less than a half hour ago, make your dog vomit by making them drink either hydrogen peroxide or saltwater. Just point their chin at the sky, open their mouth, and pour it into their mouth.  Repeat until they vomit
  2. Call ASPCA Poison Control Hotline at (888) 426-4435.  Have your credit card handy.
  3. Bring your dog to us at Mission Animal Hospital.  We are your San Luis Obispo pet emergency room, and we can be reached at (805) 250-9209.  We are open seven days a week to help you.

IF YOUR SAN LUIS OBISPO PET IS VOMITING REPEATEDLY:

  1. Prevent them from eating or drinking anything else, as it will just worsen their nausea
  2. Do NOT let them eat grass, because it will just make things
  3. Check to make sure there are no toxins around your home
  4. Call us at Mission Animal Hospital.  We are your San Luis Obispo pet emergency clinic, open every day to help you and your pet, and can be reached at (805) 250-9209.

IF YOUR SAN LUIS OBISPO PET INHALES A STICKER, call us and come on down. We’ll anesthetize your dog and remove the sticker so that you both can return to a normal life.

IF YOUR SAN LUIS OBISPO PET CANNOT URINATE, this is a medical emergency – and very painful, too. Come on down or give us a call at (805) 250-9209.
