Trauma

What to Do for Pet Trauma in Durham and Chapel Hill


When a dog or cat suffers trauma, it is crucial to get help from an emergency vet as soon as possible. Whether pets have a lesion, deep cuts or other serious injuries, immediate care can help prevent these from becoming worse or potentially life-threatening. When pets already have a life-threatening injury or other serious trauma, our emergency veterinarian in Durham can provide the care they need. 

Our Durham Veterinarian Offers Dependable Emergency Care 

At New Hope Animal Hospital, our Durham veterinarian offers reliable treatment for pets that have trauma caused by an automobile, a fight with other pets or animals or a fall. Whether it is a dog bleeding or a cat bleeding, our team will assess the injury and provide the treatment needed to slow bleeding and reduce the risk of infection for external injuries. For pets that have internal injuries, such as bleeding or broken bones or fractures, we can perform X-rays in order to determine how severe the damage is and take immediate steps to treat these injuries. 

Keep in mind that cats and some dogs might not show signs that they are in pain if they have trauma. If you know that your pet has been injured but are not sure how severe it is, it is important to seek immediate care. Our Durham vet can fully evaluate your pet’s condition and determine the severity of a cut or any other injuries that have occurred. We will then begin treatment right away to improve your pet’s condition.
