Sentinel Veterinary Specialists & Emergency is committed to offering you and your pet comprehensive emergency care. Every visit begins with a thorough physical examination to determine how we may best help your pet in urgent, emergent, and critical situations.

During this exam, we will look for visible signs of illness or injury while asking you detailed questions about your pet’s relevant history. We will then combine this information with what we glean from our exam to design a treatment plan with you.

We see the following cases that require immediate attention:


  • Skin & Ear Infections
  • Vomiting or Diarrhea (less than 1 day)
  • Acute Lameness
