Did your pet get into the bowl of Hershey’s dark chocolate kisses? Are they exhibiting unusual and alarming behaviors? Are they limping? If your pet has an urgent medical concern, please contact us immediately at (847) 296-1188. At Companion Animal Hospital, we host an emergency pet clinic in Mount Prospect, IL where our emergency veterinarians and support staff are equipped and trained to act quickly when admitting and treating emergency cases during regular business hours. Many of us are pet parents, too, and we know how stressful these situations can be.
