We’re pleased to offer the following services at Emergency Animal Hospital of Collin County.
Emergency Care: We are staffed to deal with emergencies during our hours of operation with no appointment necessary. We operate by first come, first served unless there is a life threatening emergency and those patients are seen first.
Radiographs are often used as a diagnostic tool. Digital radiography decreases the stress to your animal by providing faster image capture and enhances diagnostic capabilities through the amplified detail and ability to manipulate the image. To enhance communication, images can be e-mailed or copied to a CD for review by your family veterinarian.
Should your pet need to be anesthetized for treatment, we will tailor the type and dosage of anesthesia agents based on many factors related to the patient and his/her current medical condition. During anesthesia your pet is constantly monitored to make sure they are safe and comfortable. Once the procedure is complete, a technician is assigned specific care for your pet until he/she awakens.
Ultrasound provides a window to the internal organs of your pet and can be vital in an emergency situation. EAHCC doctors have the capability to perform preliminary ultrasound imaging to diagnose fluid around the heart, assist in safely obtaining samples of urine, abdominal fluid, or thoracic fluid, or to look for masses.
Being in the hospital can be stressful! Our staff works hard to provide your pet with the utmost comfort during their stay with us. Fleece bedding, temperature control and noise reduction are a few of the ways we help make their stay as comfortable as possible. In addition, all cages and runs are equipped to handle the most advanced level of monitoring and treatment - just like you receive in the hospital. From minor injuries to advanced disease, we have the skill, equipment and caring staff to treat it all.
Every pet that enters the EAHCC emergency room for treatment receives an examination by the attending veterinarian. The veterinarian will discuss your pet’s condition with you and will help you decide on the best treatment plan. If your pet is transferring from your family veterinarian an exam is still required to allow the veterinarian to become familiar with the current condition of your pet and the symptoms that need immediate attention.
Pain management is an important aspect of medical treatment to improve comfort and speed healing. Our veterinarians and technicians are continuously monitoring pain through physical exam and behavioral assessment throughout their stay in our hospital. We have a number of pain management treatments that can be modified to keep your pet comfortable.
Fluid therapy is a very important part of many of our inpatient cases. We use electronic fluid pumps to accurately control fluid rates and to alert us if flow is impaired for any reason. Similarly, syringe pumps are used for IV medications that must be given gradually or in high volume.
