What to do in a Pet Emergency

Basic First-Aid Strategies Can Be Helpful 

To stabilize your pet for transport, basic first-aid strategies may help. Once you feel confident transporting your pet, get to our Mechanicsburg veterinary hospital immediately. Call ahead if you can.

    • Strategies for Dogs

      Slowly and calmly approach your dog, kneel down and call their name. If there is any indication of aggression back away and call for help. If your pet seems passive, construct a makeshift stretcher and gently lift him or her onto it supporting the neck and back areas. 

    • Strategies for Cats

      To help prevent your cat from biting if they experience pain as you stabilize them, gently place a blanket or towel over the head. Slowly lift the cat and place him or her in an open-topped carrier or box, supporting the head and neck area carefully.

Continuing Care After The Emergency

      Our experienced veterinary team is here to see you through a pet emergency. When it's time to return to your primary veterinarian for post-emergency and ongoing care, we'll ensure that they have access to our records of the care we have provided for your pet.

  • A good clean place, nice and caring stuff. Sounds like they would go an extra mile to help. Normally no to very little wait. Been there two times and both times the doctors and personnel were very helpful.

  • We brought my moms dog in about a month ago for congestive heart failure and the staff has been amazing! They went over all of the medical expenses before we could choose what should be done according to our medical and financial needs. I am here for our second visit today and again, all costs were explained very well before any procedure was performed. The staff here is top notch and I wouldn't trust my baby anywhere else! Thank you Rossmoyne staff for taking such good care of our family!

  • Just wanted to thank the staff for their wonderful service and compassion. We had our dog there this past Friday evening and unfortunately what went from a suspected less serious injury turned into a multitude of a few serious issues we had to put her down. The staff was absolutely wonderful during the whole process and we very much appreciated it. Well done ladies and thank you for your excellent service during a very emotional time.
