Emergency and Urgent Care

Our pets are important to us, and pet owners strive to make sure their pets stay healthy, happy, and safe. But pets are curious and full of personality, and sometimes that sense of adventure can lead them to become unexpectedly sick or injured. When that happens, you will want to get them to the animal hospital as soon as possible. At Lake Forest Animal Hospital in McKinney, TX, we understand the importance of being able to see an emergency veterinarian when an illness or injury comes on suddenly. We also know that most pet owners prefer that emergency pet care be done at a place where their pets are most comfortable. That is why we strive to make the time and space for emergency veterinarian services for our regular patients.


Providing Urgent Care for Pets

If your pet is suddenly sick or injured during our regular animal hospital hours and you feel that it cannot wait for a regularly scheduled appointment, we will do our best to see your pet as soon as possible. If the problem seems especially dire, we ask that you give our office a call and tell us as much information as possible before you arrive. This information will help us provide your pet with the most effective urgent care possible.
