The general rule:
There is no general definition of an emergency. Contact us if your animal's life is in danger, for example due to a car accident or a severe deterioration in its general condition within a short period of time. Bleeding wounds or severe pain or poisoning of the animal are also an emergency. Please keep in mind that during emergency service times at night and on weekends, fewer veterinarians and emergency staff are on site and there may be waiting times.
Please understand that there is no time in the emergency service for treatments that can be postponed normal consultation hours

What is an emergency?
- If your rabbit is lying on its side and gasping for air - then this is an extreme emergency
- if your cat has been trying to urinate for a few hours or days and it just dribbles or nothing comes out at all? Then this is an extreme emergency for our emergency service in Karlsruhe!
- If your dog repeatedly assumes the prayer position and obviously has stomach pain and belongs to breeds that are at risk of gastric torsion (Weimaraners, German Shepherds, etc.) - then this is an extreme emergency for our emergency service!
- If your pet has had diarrhea for three days and it is 9:30 p.m. on a Saturday night, then unfortunately this is not an emergency
If your animal has an emergency, please always call one of the telephone numbers listed first so that your case can be coordinated as best as possible!
