Emergency Physical Examination
The initial examination by the veterinarians and nurses will allow for the best diagnostic and treatment plan to be determined based on your pet’s medical condition.
Clean, comfortable hospitalization facilities are provided for your pet. Treatments, monitoring, and status evaluations are supervised by the doctor on duty.
Medical cases are given diligent supervision and can require intensive care. Many cases may require the use of our climate controlled oxygen incubators, intravenous therapy, and even blood transfusion. All doctors and veterinary staff members work to ensure the best possible patient care and comfort.
The doctor may perform a wide range of surgical procedures, including, but not limited to:
- Repair of lacerations
- Removal of foreign bodies
- Caesarean section
- Bloat surgery
X-rays are often needed to help the doctor make a diagnosis. Heart failure, broken bones, detection of foreign bodies, and other major medical problems may be observed by the doctor. Modern radiographic equipment is used for this purpose. Copies of these x-rays will be given to either you or your regular veterinarian.
Various types of anesthetics are available. The doctor will choose the one which is the most appropriate for each individual case. Some procedures may be completed with a local anesthetic. Others may require intravenous drugs or gas anesthesia. Anesthesia is diligently monitored by the doctor, staff and advanced monitoring equipment.
Animal Emergency Center of Las Vegas and Henderson can provide non-invasive removal of certain esophageal (food pipe) and gastric (stomach) foreign bodies by using a flexible fiber optic scope. This is performed under general anesthesia and may eliminate the need for surgical intervention.
Current laboratory equipment provides rapid in-house evaluation of blood and urine samples when indicated. These diagnostics aid in providing the information needed to best treat your pet’s medical condition.
Blood products are available for administration to both dogs and cats.
