Offering Diagnosis and Treatment

At Dessau Veterinary Clinic, we offer diagnosis and treatment for the following pet emergencies:

  • Ingestion of a poisonous substance. Poisonous substances can be found in the home as well as the yard. If your pet ingests a toxic chemical or a poisonous plant, we can help your pet get the treatment he or she needs in order to recover.
  • Blunt force trauma. Car accidents, falls from high places and other traumatic events can cause great injury to your pet. We can set bones, administer stitches and offer surgical treatment for pets in need.
  • Heat stroke. Heat stroke is a common problem among pets in Texas. Outdoor pets need shelter and water to stay protected from the sun. We help educate pet owners about the best ways to protect pets from heat stroke. For pets suffering from heat-related illness, we can help pets get the treatment they need to make a full recovery.

What You Can Do

As a pet owner, it's important to do your part and protect your pet from medical emergencies. We recommend keeping an emergency vet phone number on hand just in case your pet ever needs urgent medical care from a veterinarian. We also recommend pet proofing your home to ensure that all poisonous substances are out of your pet's reach. Giving your pet comfortable, safe accommodations to sleep and eat can help keep your pet safe.
