There might come a time in your pet’s life when he needs emergency care. When that moment arrives, it can be scary and stressful to figure out what to do next. At Duarte Azusa Animal Hospital, Dr. Zabihi and our team are here to help the residents of Duarte and Azusa through their pet’s medical emergencies. Here are some instances where your pet might need emergency care.

Emergency Pet Care


If your pet is injured, you can’t wait to get him medical attention. If he is hit by a car or injured in your home, waiting could be fatal. Our veterinary care team is here to provide quick, effective treatment for trauma injuries to your pet. We will manage his injuries with compassion and help him get back on his feet.


It is sadly not difficult for a pet to get poisoned. Whether he got into some household chemicals, pesticides, or products he is allergic to, a potential poisoning can be deadly for your pet. If you even suspect your pet has consumed something that is toxic, you should bring him to our animal hospital for emergency pet care. Depending on the substance, our veterinarian can either counteract it or get it out of your pet’s system before it causes too much damage.

Difficulty Breathing

If your pet is in respiratory distress, he needs emergency pet care. Respiratory problems can get worse very quickly, so you want to be sure that they are addressed. Your pet can die after only a few minutes without oxygen, so bring him to the emergency vet as soon as you realize he is having difficulty with his breathing.

Animal Attack

Sometimes, your pet can be attacked by another animal. This could be due to a fight he is in or he could come into contact with a predator. Not only can your pet be severely injured, but he could be at risk of catching an infection from germs the predator might have. Bring him to a vet for emergency care.


If you notice that your pet’s belly has become extended and tender, it could be bloated. While bloat might not seem like an emergency, it can quickly cause respiratory problems for your pet. Even if it ends up being something benign, you’re better off getting your pet checked at a veterinary clinic.
