When to Seek Urgent Care for Your Pet

Knowing when your pet needs urgent care can be tricky. Urgent situations can be alarming but they are not life-threatening.
Here's a list of common medical conditions that may require a same-day visit to our hospital:

  • Ear infections: Indicated by scratching, head shaking, or any discharge from one or both ears.
  • Runny eyes and nose: This could be a sign of an infection or allergy.
  • Low fever: A warmer-than-normal nose or body could indicate infection.
  • Allergies: Sneezing, itching, or skin issues can be distressing for your pet.
  • Parasites: Fleas, ticks, and worms need prompt treatment to prevent further health issues.
  • Urinary issues: Difficulty urinating or blood in urine are signs that need immediate attention.
  • Acute vomiting or diarrhea: Persistent symptoms could lead to dehydration or be a sign of something more serious, so prompt care is a must.
  • Limping or difficulty moving: Pain or discomfort can indicate injury or joint issues.
