Small Mammal Emergency

Pocket pet emergency in Los Angeles California

Westchester Veterinary Center provides emergency care for small mammals. Thankfully, most of your pet's medical problems will not be emergencies, but some emergency situations are not always as easily recognizable. With some serious illnesses and injuries, symptoms may develop slowly and can be difficult to recognize or determine the severity of the condition. If your pet is having an emergency during business hours, please call us at (310) 645-4444 or come directly to our hospital. For emergencies after business hours, please visit our emergencies page for the nearest 24-hour emergency veterinary facility.

  • Changes in behavior
  • Decreased appetite
  • Diarrhea or persistent abnormal droppings
