When your furry friend is unwell or injured, it can be challenging to determine what type of veterinary care they require. It’s essential to understand the distinction between urgent care and emergency situations to help you decide when to bring your pet in for veterinary services.
Urgent Care: We offer pet urgent care in Savannah, which is classified as veterinary care that is needed quickly, but is not life-threatening. Examples of situations that require urgent care include vomiting, diarrhea, sudden limping, and ear infections. Urgent care appointments are usually scheduled within 24-48 hours. Your veterinarian may advise you to bring your pet in for urgent care if they have a condition that is causing discomfort or discomfort but is not life-threatening.
Emergency Situations: Emergency situations are when your pet’s life is in immediate danger. Examples of emergency situations include being hit by a car, difficulty breathing, severe injury or bleeding, and seizures. These situations require immediate veterinary attention and cannot wait. If your pet is in an emergency situation, it is critical to bring them to a veterinary emergency clinic as soon as possible.
When it comes to your pet’s health, it’s always better to be cautious. If you are uncertain about what type of veterinary care your pet requires, don’t hesitate to contact Island Veterinary Clinic for guidance. We are here to assist you and your furry family member.
