American Vet Hospital Seeks to Inform Area Pet Owners About Urgent Care Services for Pets

SIMI VALLEY, Calif., June 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Vet Hospital is excited to bring awareness to a service to its already lengthy list of pet services – urgent care services. Dr. Luis Cruz of American Vet Hospital is proud to bring awareness to urgent care services for pets in the Simi Valley area. "It's a much-needed addition to the area," says Dr. Cruz, "that has traditionally been underserved when it comes to urgent care during regular business hours."

Dr. Cruz is a 1999 graduate of the University of California – Davis and brings five years of experience in emergency veterinarian medicine from his work at McClave Veterinary Hospital in Reseda. Before that he interned in avian medicine under renowned Max Weiss D.V.M. at Capri Plaza Pet Clinic.

The clinic offers a wide range urgent care emergency services including treatment for accidents, animal fights, poison consumption, diarrhea, vomiting, seizures, auto accidents, falls, and more. It provides emergency services during regular business hours by appointment and as a walk-in service.

"We choose this line of work out of a desire to help pets," says Dr. Cruz. With that in mind, urgent care services are available at American Vet Hospital six days a week with a team on staff that's trained to handle urgent care needs of pets.

Urgent care services are available during office hours for emergencies that are of immediate concern though they may not be immediately life threatening. Pet owners are invited to call ahead so that the staff can begin making efforts to squeeze the pet in on busy days and so that pet owners can be advised of things they can do to make their pets more comfortable while waiting to see the veterinarian.

The facility has cutting edge tools in place to handle most animal emergencies including tools necessary for most diagnostic and surgical procedures, including laser assisted surgeries and treatments for pets – making emergency treatments, and even surgeries, possible with very little notice or preparation.

In addition to offering urgent medical care for traditional pets, American Vet Hospital also offers treatment for exotic pets including pocket pets, birds, and more by offering diagnostic treatment, preventative care, and vital advice about health and nutrition of household pets.
