There is no general definition for an emergency. Contact us if your animal is in danger of life, e.g. due to a car accident or a strong deterioration of the general condition within a short time. Bleeding wounds or severe pain or poisoning of the animal are also an emergency. Please keep in mind that during emergency service hours at night and on weekends there are fewer veterinarians and staff on site for emergencies and waiting times may occur.
Please understand that for treatments that also regular office hours ...and there's no time for emergency services.

What's the emergency?
- if your rabbit lies on its side and gasps for air - then this is an extreme emergency
- if your cat has been trying to pass urine for a few hours or days and it just drips or it doesn't come at all? Then this is an extreme emergency for our emergency service in Karlsruhe!
- if your dog repeatedly takes up the prayer position and obviously has stomach ache and belongs to breeds that are in danger of getting a stomach turn (Weimaraner, German shepherds etc.) - then this is an extreme emergency for our emergency service!
- if your animal has had diarrhoea for three days and it is 9.30 pm on Saturday night, then unfortunately this is not an emergency
