Emergency Veterinary Care At Burke Animal Clinic
Pet lovers know how scary it can be when a pet gets really sick or badly injured. At Burke Animal Clinic, we know all too well what that feeling sounds and looks like. We are a Burke veterinarian office with a major soft spot and extreme sensitivity to all of the animals for whom we provide loving care. We practice holistic veterinary medicine and we pride ourselves on treating all of the pets — and the owners — who come into our office as if they were longtime friends or family members. We’ve seen a wide range of serious illnesses and injuries and we feel your pain along with you when your precious pet is suffering.
During our office hours we, of course, put emergency vet care at a priority and we’ll get right to work on examining your pet, getting them stabilized and helping them feel as comfortable as possible while they are in our care.
What We Can Do
If you’re looking for a veterinarian in Burke to examine and treat your pet’s serious illness or injury, we will do everything in our power to help. Our phone number is listed below and we’d be happy to take your call and direct you on the best course of action, depending on your pet’s specific condition. We can address many concerns directly in our office, but if you suspect that your pet has ingested poison, don’t wait until you see symptoms, call the poison control center immediately with as much information as possible, including product name, dosage, label information, time of ingestion and original package/container information.
If you need immediate assistance outside of our regularly scheduled office hours, please don’t hesitate to call an animal hospital that provides 24-hour emergency care. For your convenience, we have listed several below:

What You Can Do
We know that it can be hard to calm down when your pet is in pain. As holistic vets, though, we know that it’s one of the best things you can do when your pet is in a crisis situation. They are looking to you to make sure they get the care and attention they need, so the sooner you can focus on calmly soothing them, the faster they can start feeling some emotional relief while they wait to be treated for their illness or injury.
