At Knoxville Pet Emergency Clinic, we understand that sometimes pets other than dogs and cats need emergency care too. While we specialize in after-hours emergency care for dogs and cats, we also want to ensure that all pet owners in the Knoxville area have access to the resources they need in case of an emergency involving a non-dog/cat pet.
Here are some resources that may be helpful for pet owners seeking emergency care for non-dog/cat pets in the Knoxville area:
- For emergency care for birds, reptiles, or exotic pets, we recommend contacting Knoxville Zoo’s veterinary team at (865) 637-5331.
- If you have a large animal emergency, such as a horse, cow, or other livestock, we suggest reaching out to the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine at (865) 974-8387.
- For wildlife emergencies, such as injured or orphaned animals, we recommend contacting the Appalachian Bear Rescue at (865) 448-0143 or the Smoky Mountain Wildlife Center at (865) 429-0157.
- If you are unsure about where to turn for emergency care for your pet, you can also call the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435 for guidance.
We hope these resources are helpful in case of an emergency involving a non-dog/cat pet. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us at Knoxville Pet Emergency Clinic at (865) 637-0114 for any questions or concerns.
