Common Pet Emergencies: The Urgent Care Setting

When a pet comes through our doors for an emergency visit, there are several possibilities that we are going to think about. Some of the most common causes of pet emergencies include:

Vomiting: Vomiting is the most common emergency that comes through our door. Sometimes, the pet has developed a stomach bug that has led to profusely vomiting. In other cases, the pet might have ingested something that he or she shouldn't have. This foreign object will also lead to vomiting.

Broken Bones: Pets are also prone to suffering injuries. Some pets might step in a hole. Other pets might get attacked by a large animal. This can lead to bone fractures that need x-rays, a cast, and, occasionally, surgical correction.

Seizures: We also see pets that come in suffering from seizures. A seizure develops when the neurons in the brain start to fire uncontrollably. This might be due to an electrolyte imbalance, head trauma, or even a tumor. We will work hard to find the cause of the seizures and stop them from happening.

When a pet has an emergency, it is important to seek medical care as quickly as possible. We are here to provide emergency services to pets in need.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I've been there twice and the people are a delight to work with. They genuinely care for your baby. Customer service they provide toward your pet is OUTSTANDING. My baby was scared but they put him at ease. Ohh and his humans too. They have home what seems to be the right medicine because he is already eating and down for a good nap. All I can say is THANK YOU
    I wish you were a full service vet I would use you all the time"

  • "This is my first review so bear with me.....Under a very hard emergency circumstance, I used this establishment yesterday for my cat. I can not express how thankful I am that I found them. It was a Sunday so my vet was closed. I was a total stranger and was treated like a lifelong customer. Whatever it is you are doing, please keep up the good work. Thank you."

  • "This place is awesome! I went in because my dog was choking on his collar! Yes, his collar! When I got there they were so urgent and alert to what seemed to be an emergency situation. (At least to me). Especially the young man at the front desk who moved really fast for someone who had a boot on his foot! Also, They were so comforting due to the fact I was crying hysterically. I would recommend this place to anyone! My puppy is back home like nothing ever happened lol. Definitely five star service."
