Our reliable and compassionate team at Rossmoyne Animal Emergency Trauma Center offers veterinary care for dogs and cats in any emergency situation. Our emergency veterinarians take pride in providing quality medical care when your pet needs it most. We are your Mechanicsburg emergency vet!
Some of the pet emergencies we treat involve toxicity, dog fights, broken bones, foreign body ingestions, or being struck by a car. We also treat pets with medical conditions which may become unmanageable over time such as pancreatitis, seizures, or diabetes, to name a few.
Emergency veterinary care involves the treatment of animals in situations which require immediate medical attention, or could potentially be life-threatening.
These situations are considered emergencies and will require immediate care. If your pet has had an accident, or is experiencing any of these symptoms, bring them to our emergency office straight away.
At our Mechanicsburg emergency pet hospital, we offer advanced emergency care for your four-legged family members. We are equipped to provide specialized diagnostics, a complete range of surgical services, and hospitalization.
If you can, it's always best to call us ahead of your arrival, but we understand emergency situations can develop very quickly and that this is not always possible.
If your situation does not allow time for you to call, please do not hesitate to bring your pet to our clinic for immediate veterinary medical attention.
Our emergency animal hospital is open 7 days a week from 10 am to 10 pm. We're open on evenings, weekends and major holidays.
A veterinary emergency hospital is very similar to a human emergency department — the pace can be unpredictable and you may have to wait.
We are not able to predict which cases we will see and when they will arrive, but we will prioritize cases based on medical need.
You'll find a comfortable area for waiting, and we will do our best to keep you updated about wait times and the status of your pet.
Yes, we will keep your primary care veterinarian updated with your pet's medical history and files to ensure your pet receives seamless, integrated care.
For emergency patients that require cardiac diagnoses and procedures we will work with our on-call board-certified veterinary cardiologist in Mechanicsburg.
The cardiologist will use diagnostic equipment to identify the underlying causes and will provide the best possible recommendations for treatment. If a heart condition is uncovered, treatment options could include medication, surgery, or a combination of both.
For emergency patients that require an ultrasound we will coordinate with a mobile sonographer in Mechanicsburg to book an ultrasound appointment for your pet.
Whether your pet receives an ultrasound at our location, or the sonographer comes to you at your primary care veterinarian, a board-certified radiologist will review the images to help reveal the root cause of your pet’s condition.
