After Hours Pet Emergencies

During business hours, we welcome pet emergencies at Taylor Crossing Animal Hospital and encourage you to call us as soon as you recognize your pet is in crisis. For all overnight hospitalized patients in our care, our live-in Veterinary Nurse will continuously monitor their condition. If problems arise with a hospitalized patient, our attending doctor will be notified.

If your pet suffers a medical emergency after regular business hours, call (334) 260-8787 immediately. If you are unsure your pet's situation warrants an emergency visit, talk to our After Hours Triage Nurse first! Our Nurse will assess the emergency, contact a doctor with questions if necessary, and provide you with guidance and the next steps needed to care for your pet, as well as direct you to the nearest emergency clinic if your pet needs immediate medical attention. We refer our local emergencies to Carriage Hills Animal Hospital, but you can reach out to them without a referral if you believe your pet is in need of after-hours care.

We encourage you to contact the emergency clinic before your arrival to ensure there is a veterinarian on-site.

Emergency Tests & Diagnostics

During your pet’s stay, we provide the highest-quality care and attention. All hospitalized patients are kept in a specialized treatment area where they are closely monitored.

Our vet team is skilled in offering surgical, diagnostic, and medical care and work with compassion and efficiency to ensure a positive outcome.

We offer the latest diagnostics and testing for our urgent care patients at our emergency veterinary clinic, including:

  • Blood Analysis. A blood analysis can help us determine what is wrong with your dog or cat if they are experiencing an unknown illness or have ingested a toxic substance.
  • Digital X-rays. X-rays help us determine what kind of internal injuries your pet might be experiencing after a fight or accident involving a car.
  • Surgery. Sometimes pets need to be brought into surgery to repair internal injuries.
  • Fracture Repair. We set broken bones / fractures for animals to help them heal quickly and properly. Your pet's veterinarian will also help relieve your pet's pain during the healing process.
  • Medication. Medicines may be necessary to help your pet recover from a medical emergency or illness. We keep a range of pet medication on hand to ensure that your pet's needs are covered.
