Our reliable and compassionate veterinary teams at each of Marcello Veterinary Hospital's two locations offer veterinary care for pets in most emergency situations.

Steps to Take In A Pet Emergency

If you are experiencing a veterinary emergency, follow the steps below.

  • Call Ahead If Possible - During regular business hours call us right away.
  • Follow Instructions Provided - When you call us, instructions may be provided to help you apply first aid or otherwise make your pet as comfortable as possible. Follow these instructions carefully. Referrals to other emergency care providers may also be offered depending on the time of day and your circumstances.
  • Remain Calm - Remain calm and be extra careful around your pet. When an animal is in pain they often react negatively towards anyone trying to help and could bite or scratch.
  • Bring Your Pet In For Care - Do not put yourself at risk! Safely bring your pet to either of our locations in Houma or Raceland.
