At Wheaton Animal Hospital, we offer exceptional emergency pet care services available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days per year. Our services are designed to fit your pet’s needs, no matter the emergency.

Pet emergencies can come in a variety of forms. Common pet emergencies include:

  • Poisoning
  • Foreign object ingestion
  • Heat stroke
  • Car accidents
  • Animal attacks
  • Frostbite
  • An at-home emergency care plan can go a long way in helping your pet during an emergency situation. More often than not, though, your pet will need medical attention from a veterinarian.

    If an emergency happens during business hours, you’re welcome to come straight in or call our main number first if you have questions.

    Pet emergencies don’t always happen during normal business hours, though. We’ve established an emergency number (630) 337-3070 that lets you phone our on-call veterinarian for a phone consultation prior to coming in for after-hours care if needed. If your pet’s conditions is an emergency, our on-call veterinarian will meet you and your pet at our location for immediate medical treatment.

    Depending on your pet’s emergency situation, overnight observation may be in order to help ensure that your pet recovers from his or her injury or illness. The supervision of our dedicated overnight staff will allow us to respond to your pet’s emergency needs and help your pet recover more quickly.
