North Central Animal Hospital Offers Pet Urgent Care
A sudden illness or accident can occur at any time. When these incidents occur, pet owners want professional, knowledgeable care that can help their pets immediately. At North Central Animal Hospital in Phoenix, AZ, we are available for pet urgent care, as part of our pet services, for situations when your pet needs treatment quickly.
What Is Pet Urgent Care?
Pet urgent care ensures animals receive prompt attention for sudden veterinary problems. Respiratory infections, eye and ear infections, minor wounds, and gastrointestinal disturbances can be distressing for both animals and their owners. Your veterinarian in Phoenix will make room in the schedule to treat any urgent care need, so your pet can return to normal as quick as possible. For severe trauma, bleeding, breathing problems, or other issues that occur after our normal hours, we can also refer you to an emergency veterinary clinic in the area for prompt treatment.
Common Urgent Care Conditions
Heatstroke is one of the most common pet urgent care situations veterinarians encounter in their practice. It occurs when pets become overheated in hot weather, causing symptoms like drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, uncoordinated movement, and unconsciousness. Minor cuts and other types of soft tissue damage can also be treated as urgent care. If your pet has a severe respiratory infection or eye infection, the vet should see the animal as soon as possible. Severe diarrhea or constipation should be seen by the vet. Problems with urination should also receive diagnosis and treatment. Seizures or other unusual behavior should be seen by the vet. If your pet experiences any of these problems, contact a North Central Animal Hospital vet immediately, to bring the animal in for treatment or to be referred to an emergency vet clinic in your area.
Your Phoenix Veterinarian Can Help with Urgent Care Issues
Your vet in Phoenix will examine your pet as quickly as possible, providing a thorough examination and laboratory testing to determine the animal’s condition.
