Call Falls Road Animal Hospital if you are experiencing an emergency. A veterinarian is on call.

In case of an emergency, use our checklist to make your visit as easy as possible.

While many small animal practices find themselves overwhelmed by the forces at work, Falls Road Animal Hospital has attained a size that is capable of benefiting from prevailing trends and the most current Veterinary medicine. We hire selectively from the large pool of graduating Veterinarians thereby maintaining the quality of the practice. The hospital is large enough to be exceptionally well equipped and is able to handle the most difficult cases 24 hours daily.

Intensive Care

Sick patients are hospitalized in a separate Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and monitored 24 hours a day by trained technicians. Our ICU is equipped to handle patients requiring:
  • Blood and blood component transfusions
  • Continuous monitoring (pulse oxymetry, EKG, etc.)
  • Peripheral and central venous catheterization
  • Partial parenteral nutrition
  • Intravenous fluids
  • Oxygen
  • Urinary catheterization

Why Get a Second Opinion?

First, you can get a different perspective. Some doctors are more conservative and others more aggressive – there are good arguments for hearing several different options. Another doctor may come up with a completely different and promising option – one that your first doctor didn’t think of or didn’t know about. It happens; no doctor can know everything or make the right decision all the time. A second opinion serves as a general quality check to make sure you’re really getting the most up-to-date and effective treatment.

You shop around for your car, your schools, or your TV. Don’t you think you should do the same for your animal’s health?
