We Provide Urgent Veterinary Pet Care
If your pet is sick, injured, or just seems off and you know that something isn’t quite right, it can be hard to determine if your pet needs immediate veterinary care. So the question is…what is the difference between urgent and emergency veterinary care? A guide to determine if emergency care is needed, is to evaluate your pet for an injury or illness that is life threatening (difficulty breathing, heart failure, seizures, internal bleeding, collapsing, severe trauma, fractures) and may require hospitalization.
On the other hand, urgent care lies somewhere between emergency care and a routine regular vet visit. It is in a nebulous area where you know there is something wrong with your pet and you feel your pet needs to be examined ASAP.
As a general rule, Urgent Care is for conditions that need immediate medical attention but are not truly life-threatening. Some of these conditions may include:
- Bite wounds
- Diarrhea or vomiting
- Itchy skin or rashes
- Wound treatment
- Hair loss
- Pain or limping
- Overgrown nails
- Changes in behavior
- Loss of appetite or overeating
- Cuts and abrasions
- Eye issues (tearing, redness, discharge)
- Ear infections
- Pale gums
- Runny nose, coughing, or sneezing
- Worms, fleas, ticks, or mites
- Urinating blood
- Urinary changes
The general rule here is that if your pet is experiencing a life threatening situation which may need hospitalization, your pet most likely needs to be taken where emergency care casn be provided:
- Collapse or loss of consciousness
- Excessive bleeding
- Severe or persistent diarrhea or vomiting
- Penetrating wounds
- Stopped breathing
- Cardiac arrest
- Trauma or accident, such as falling or being hit by an object or car
- Distressed mother in labor/inability to deliver kittens or puppies
