After Hours Emergency Clinic
When should you call the Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills or go straight to an emergency clinic?
Lethargy, diarrhea, or vomiting lasting more than 24 hours post-op are not normal and you can give us a call or an appointment should be made with your regular veterinarian if these symptoms occur. Dogs may have a slight cough for several days after surgery, however, if this continues for more than 3 days or is severe give us a call or an appointment should be scheduled with your regular veterinarian.
Please call the Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic at 910-400-7682, and press 4 to leave a message for the on-call staff member. You will be given directions for treatment, either at the Spay Neuter Clinic itself or we will recommend you contact your regular veterinarian or the emergency clinic in Vass. If ALL Post-Op instructions are followed in FULL, SNVC will treat at our clinic, at minimal cost, post-op complications resulting directly from the surgery.
Your regular veterinarian must address illnesses or injuries that are not a direct result of surgery, such as contagious diseases for which the animal was not previously properly vaccinated. We will not be responsible for post-operative care provided without contacting the Spay Neuter Clinic or performed at another veterinary clinic.
Please call for an appointment as soon as you see cause for concern. Complications can worsen quickly if they are not addressed immediately. If you are not able to reach us and are concerned for your pet, please proceed to the nearest emergency clinic for evaluation.
NEVER GIVE YOUR PET OVER THE COUNTER OR PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS WITHOUT CONSULTING YOUR VETERINARIAN. DO NOT APPLY CLEANING SOLUTIONS, TOPICALS OR COVER THE INCISION AS IT CAN CAUSE THE INCISION TO OPEN OR WORSEN INFECTION.
