Urgent care when your pet is sick
When your pet is sick, it can be stressful, so we do our best to make the process easier for you and your pet.
We are available for urgent care appointments when the condition is not life-threatening but you feel your pet needs to be seen as soon as possible. Urgent care appointments include things like ear or skin infections, bladder infections, cuts, limping, or respiratory issues.
When your pet is experiencing an emergency, we’re available during our regular business hours. Emergencies can be things such as hit by car, trouble breathing, or chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet is sick and requires emergency treatment, do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible, it is best to call before coming in so a team member can advise you on your particular emergency. There may be times when an emergency should go directly to a specialty/emergency hospital for care so please call for advice. After hours we refer to a local emergency veterinary hospital.
If your pet is showing abnormal symptoms, call our office to schedule an appointment. Searching symptoms on the internet may seem convenient, but often pets have had their treatment delayed because of an incorrect diagnosis made using information found online. The experience and tools at a vet are more likely to lead to an accurate diagnosis than the conflicting, and often incorrect, information online.
