Trauma

Portland Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Care is well equipped to handle trauma. A pet’s sudden or severe injury may require immediate medical attention.  These situations often occur when a pet is hit by a car or attacked by another animal. In these cases, diagnostics are performed to help determine the injuries and what treatments are needed after the patient is stabilized. Hospitalization and medications are often required in cases of severe trauma. Traumas we often see include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Dog attacks
  • Falling from heights
  • Gunshot wounds
