ANIMAL EMERGENCY CARE
Tennessee Avenue Animal Hospital offers animal emergency care to Norwood 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
Due to the crucial role we play in the health and continuity of care for your pets, veterinary medicine has been deemed an essential business by authorities and we will continue operate during the “stay at home” order recently issued in Ohio.
At this time, we are doing curbside drop off/pickup appointments, only the pet(s) will be coming inside. We ask that when you arrive for your appointment, you call us, we will get a history and take the pet inside. Once Dr. Laura has done the exam on the pet, she will call you to discuss her findings, along with the recommendations. Once the care is completed, we will take payment over the phone, with a credit card, when ever possible. We will then bring the pet, along with any medications or treatments, back out to your car. The same process will be followed for medication or food pickups.
Euthanasia - up to two people will be allowed in the building, mandatory temperature check, and wearing of masks required. Thank you for your understanding.
If you have any questions regarding this protocol, please feel free to contact us.
