Trauma and Lacerations
If you're in the Missoula area and need emergency vet care, we're here to help. We know trauma or lacerations need to be treated quickly. One of the most common reasons we see trauma in dogs is from fighting.
An emergency needs quick care
A pet involved in a fight may need an emergency vet. Serious injuries such as cuts, scrapes, bites, and puncture wounds are common when dogs fight. It can be hard to tell the extent of the damage with trauma. Pet Emergency Center will give you information and support so you can make decisions about your pet's care.
How serious are lacerations?
Lacerations can be a serious consequence of a dog fight. Claws and teeth puncture and tear skin. An emergency vet can clean the lacerations thoroughly to reduce the risk of infection. They can also stitch the laceration if it's large so your pet can heal easily. Your dog may need to wear a cone or other protective device so they don't chew or lick the area.
Pet Emergency Center understands that your pet could require emergency vet care at any time. Call (406) 829-9300 for help.
