Emergency Referrals

Dr. Kleiner

If your pet seems sick or is demonstrating odd behaviors, please call Dr. Kleiner. Many conditions can be addressed with a house call; however, there are times when your pet should be taken to a veterinary hospital. Dr. Kleiner will ask you a series of questions to determine the severity of your pet's condition. If necessary, a referral will be made to a local hospital or emergency clinic. Your pet’s wellbeing is our top priority, and our goal is to get your pet the appropriate medical care without delay.

If your pet is in need of immediate medical attention, please contact the closest emergency hospital:

If you think your pet has ingested a poisonous substance, please contact the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center hotline at (888) 426-4435. This number is available year round, 24 hours a day.

The following symptoms are considered life-threatening and are not appropriate for a house call:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Unable to urinate
  • Having a seizure
  • Serious trauma
  • Uncontrollable bleeding
  • Loss of consciousness

If your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms, please go directly to an emergency veterinary hospital. Rest assured that Dr. Kleiner will connect with the appropriate personnel and follow-up with you and your pet.
