When your pet gets injured, it’s helpful to know when to recognize a serious medical issue. First aid is not a substitute for veterinary care, but quick thinking and staying calm may save your pet's life until they receive treatment from a veterinarian. There are two emergency hospitals in the Asheville area, REACH and Western Caroline Regional Emergency Hospital. Have their numbers handy in case you find yourself in an emergency situation.
Western Carolina Regional Emergency Hospital: 828-697-7767
