Is this an Emergency?
While we hope one never happens, pet owners can find their beloved furkids in the middle of a medical emergency with – of course – little to no notice. Some situations are obvious. Others, not as much. If it is something that will keep you up all night worrying if it’s an emergency – we consider it an emergency! We are able to see patients in an emergency during regular business hours.
If you think your pet is having a medical emergency call us right away at (661) 248-7387. If you KNOW your pet is in a medical crisis get it in the car and bring the pet to the hospital. Have someone who is not driving call us on the way if possible. If an emergency happens at any other time or on a public holiday please call Kern Animal Emergency and Urgent Care in Bakersfield at (661) 322-6019.
