Immediate Veterinary Care in Vancouver, WA. Now offering same-day and next-day urgent care appointments.

As a pet owner, you possess an intimate understanding of your furry companion, enabling you to recognize when something is amiss or doesn't feel quite right. If your pet falls ill, sustains an injury, or displays signs of discomfort that do not appear to be life-threatening, they may require urgent care.

Urgent veterinary care falls between regular veterinary visits and emergency visits. While emergency care is necessary for life-threatening conditions or injuries that demand immediate hospitalization, urgent care is intended for situations where your pet needs prompt attention but may not be facing an immediate life-threatening situation. Although the boundaries are not always clear-cut, urgent care generally arises when a pet owner senses that their pet's injury or condition cannot wait for a routine vet appointment.

Here are some examples of situations warranting urgent veterinary care:

  • Fever
  • Mild dehydration
  • Ingestion of certain toxins
  • Ingestion of a foreign object (non-food item, toy, etc.)
  • Refusal to eat or drink
  • Minor wounds or lacerations
  • Slight lameness or limping
  • Coughing or sneezing
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Eye discharge and squinting
  • Upper respiratory infection
  • Abscess
  • Back pain
  • Ear infection
  • Skin allergy
  • Reaction to a vaccine
  • Anal gland issue
  • Urinary tract problem

If your pet experiences any of these situations, seeking urgent veterinary care ensures they receive timely attention and appropriate treatment. We are proud to offer same-day and next- day urgent care appointments. Contact us today!
