Is Your Dog or Cat Having an Emergency?  301.662.2273

Triage

We treat the most critically ill or seriously injured patients first. This is called “triage.” Upon arrival at CARE all pets are triaged by our experienced medical staff. Pets with emergencies are seen as they arrive at CARE and served based on the severity of the condition or injury. If your pet has life threatening needs they will be seen immediately. We have special procedures and equipment available, which can significantly improve your pet’s survival and recovery in emergency situations.
