East Valley Emergency Pet Clinic in Diamond Bar understands that your pet is a valued member of your family, and we strive to provide quality care with this in mind. Our skilled veterinarians will efficiently provide urgent care at our fully fitted facility, where we have all the necessary equipment to take scans and tests and begin treatment right away. We are open even after other veterinary offices are closed so that whatever situation your pet is in, you have access to excellent care immediately.
Some of the emergencies we treat include heat stroke, excessive bleeding, bites from wild animals, dehydration, ingestion of toxins, auto injuries, severe diarrhea or vomiting, pain or severe anxiety, and soft tissue injuries.
How Soft Tissue Repairs Can Benefit Your Pet
Soft tissue injuries are the most common cause of limping in dogs and cats. The pain ranges from mild to severe depending on the extent of the damage to the ligaments, tendons, and other soft tissues. These injuries may be traumatic, age-related, or congenital, and our veterinarian surgeons are adept at performing pet surgery to yield satisfactory results.
Soft tissue involves skin, muscle, and internal organs, and these may be injured due to any of the following:
- Fights with other animals.
- Cranial cruciate ligament disease (CCLD)
- Sprains and strains from slipping on ice, for instance
- Aggressive playing
- Auto accidents
Our veterinarians will need to evaluate your pet for an accurate diagnosis. However, there are some signs of an issue you should take notice of right away, including:
- Limping that lasts longer than 48 hours
- Lethargy and depression
- Excessively licking the joints or legs
- A loss of appetite
- A limp tail
- Red joints
- Swollen joints and paws
- Crying out for no visible reason
- Yelping when touched
We know that maintaining your pet's well-being is crucial. That's why you can rest assured that if your pet displays any of these symptoms, we will take all necessary tests and find a satisfactory solution to help your pet get on the road to recovery.
Taking Care of Your Pet Post-Surgery
After a pet has undergone surgery, it is advisable to let them rest or confine them to a pen within the house, so healing has the time to take place. Continue whatever medications and exercises our vets prescribe for the entire course, and keep the injury site free from dirt and debris. Make sure to examine it for bleeding, pus, or swelling, and make certain the appropriate food and water are within easy reach for your pet.
