How to Know If Your Pet Needs Urgent Care

When in doubt, we always recommend erring on the side of caution and seeking veterinary care if your pet has any of the following symptoms:

When Should You Go Directly to ER?

If you aren’t sure whether your pet needs to see a veterinarian for an urgent care appointment or if it can wait, we always welcome you to contact our office to discuss your pet’s symptoms and get professional advice regarding the urgency of your pet’s condition in addition to guidance on how to provide your pet with comfort until they see a veterinarian.

Quick Results and Fast Treatment With In-House Diagnostics

When you bring your pet in for an urgent care appointment, our first priority will always be to stabilize your pet’s condition and provide any available treatments that will give your pet immediate relief. We then perform a thorough physical examination on your pet which might also include diagnostic tests and imaging to help us pinpoint the underlying cause of illness or determine the extent of a pet’s injury.
Once we have reached a definitive diagnosis of your pet’s conditions, our veterinarians will provide you with a variety of treatment options designed to address the underlying cause of your pet’s illness while continuing to provide symptomatic relief. We’ll answer any questions you might have before determining the most appropriate course of action.
