What Is Pet Urgent Care & Emergency Care?
Pet urgent care and emergency care are areas of veterinary medicine that deal with sudden illness or accidents. In these cases, veterinarians use their special training and experience to quickly determine the source of the problems, with help from diagnostic equipment and testing, to provide the treatments and medicines animals need. In these situations, your veterinarian in Atlanta will make every effort to see your pet as quickly as possible.
What Constitutes a Pet Emergency?
Any incident that involves continuous bleeding is considered an emergency situation. Breathing difficulties, broken bones, seizures or unconsciousness are also an emergency that requires immediate care. If your pet is vomiting continuously, has uncontrolled diarrhea or has bloating, or signs of blockage, you should see the vet as soon as possible. Eye injuries, heat stroke or refusal to eat or drink are all situations that should be seen by your veterinarian quickly. Birthing difficulties are another common emergency that needs professional veterinary care.
