Animal Emergency Care

Tennessee Avenue Animal Hospital offers animal emergency care to Paddock Hills and surrounding areas during regular operating hours. Whether your pet appears to be sick, injured, or simply isn't acting normal, our team will accommodate you and your pet immediately. While we do recommend calling in advance so our veterinarians and technicians can prepare for your arrival, we understand that this is not always possible. We will promptly admit your pet for treatment and do our best to answer your questions and ease your concerns.


Is Your Pet Having an Emergency?

If you're concerned that your pet may have eaten something poisonous or is behaving strangely, please call us right away so we can help you determine the next best step. To recognize when an emergency is taking place, look for these indicators:

  • A rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Pale pink or white gums
  • Pet is unable to walk or stand
  • Showing signs of pain
  • Heavy bleeding, bleeding from mouth/nose
  • Unable to urinate properly
  • Blood in stool/vomit
  • Seizures/convulsions
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Possibility of broken bones
  • Blunt force trauma or other injuries
  • Distended abdomen
  • Painful abdomen
  • Foaming at the mouth
  • Trouble breathing (panting heavily, choking, coughing)
  • Pet appears disoriented, unable to walk normally, falling down
  • Elevated temperature (ears are warm, nose is warm and dry)

I have been using TAAH for a very long time, through a history of many dogs. I always feel secure in the expertise of the doctors, the tech staff and the office staff. Very professional staff, yet very personable and congenial. Dogs like it too!

- Emilie K.

Best vets and staff in the city!

- Sandy L.

TAAH treats both myself and my Bella like family. We aren’t just another number or patient... but are cared for incredibly well. The staff from the front desk to the exam room are not just consummate professionals but kind and compassionate people. Under the circumstances, you might even think we ENJOY coming to the vet! And who can say that?!

- Carey R.

So loving towards pet and family, so caring. Just perfect. And my Dutchess runs in the door like it`s her home. Thanks so very much!

Tennessee Avenue Animal Hospital is my choice for my cat, Sassy`s, healthcare because they genuinely like her. All of the doctors at Tennessee Avenue treat Sassy with such care, and she behaves really well. Due to her chronic health issues, we are at the vet often, so it is imperative that Sassy gets along with the vet that she sees so often. Sassy really likes Dr. Bo, and every staff member always remembers her when we walk in. Ultimately, it is very relieving to me that my furbaby has the best care!

We just moved to Cincinnati and we were looking for a Vet that would accept New Patients and TAAH exceeded our expectations. They were knowledgeable and very friendly. They helped us with a few issues that had been going on with our pet and I am so excited that we chose this vet! They are awesome!

- Kacey W.

You can always tell a good animal hospital when you are first greeted by the staff. Are they happy to be there? That good nature trickles down from the doctor, always. I have had so many good experiences over the years at TAAH, too numerous to mention. But always excellent care, and consideration of my financial situation when it was necessary. 5 STARS. You can really trust them.

- Terry L.

Dr. Bo, Maria, and Janet are the absolute best! Dr. Bo spent a lot of time with our Dog, Duke and speaking with us about his care. I've never seen a vet that was so thorough. I highly recommend them!

- Amanda T.

Exceptional Staff and Dr. Bo is the best! He treats critters and their guardians with patience, great advice and humor. I give the entire staff the very highest marks and I'm super picky! Thanks for all you do!

- Polly I.

Amazing staff and doctor! They truly care about their patients and community!

- Jessica T.

Dr. Bo and the rest of the staff at TAAH are amazing and take such good care of our pups. Thanks for all you do.

- Cara N.

I have been bringing my fur babies here for 13 years. All the staff have taken wonderful care of my loves!
