What is Pet Urgent Care?

Pet urgent care goes beyond routine veterinary services, providing immediate attention to pets facing sudden illnesses or injuries. At Harrison Animal Hospital, our dedicated team of veterinarians is equipped to handle urgent situations with efficiency and care. Pet urgent care addresses acute issues that require prompt attention but may not necessarily constitute life-threatening emergencies. It serves as the vital middle ground between routine veterinary care and emergency situations, ensuring your pet receives swift and specialized care when unexpected issues arise.

When to Seek Pet Urgent Care

Recognizing the signs that your pet requires urgent care is crucial. If you observe any of the following symptoms, it’s time to seek prompt veterinary attention:

Difficulty Breathing

If your pet is struggling to breathe, it’s a clear indication of a serious problem that requires immediate attention.

Severe Injury

In cases of severe injuries, such as fractures, deep wounds, or trauma, urgent care is essential to alleviate pain and prevent further complications.

Ingestion of Toxic Substances

Quick intervention can make all the difference if your pet has ingested a toxic substance. Contact our urgent care team immediately.

Sudden Behavioral Changes

Any abrupt changes in behavior, such as lethargy, disorientation, or extreme restlessness, may signal an underlying issue that needs urgent evaluation.

Persistent Vomiting or Diarrhea
