At East Ridge Animal Hospital, we understand the importance of timely veterinary care for your pet’s health which is why we offer pet urgent care in Chattanooga. To help you navigate the decision-making process, it’s crucial to differentiate between urgent care and emergency situations.
Urgent Care: Urgent care addresses non-life-threatening conditions that require prompt attention. These include issues like vomiting, diarrhea, sudden limping, and ear infections. Urgent care appointments are typically scheduled within 24-48 hours. If your pet is experiencing discomfort or a condition that needs prompt intervention but is not life-threatening, our veterinarians may recommend urgent care services.
Emergency Situations: In life-threatening scenarios where your pet’s well-being is at immediate risk, swift action is crucial. Emergency situations encompass incidents such as severe injuries or bleeding, difficulty breathing, seizures, or being hit by a car. In these critical moments, it is imperative to bring your pet to a veterinary emergency clinic without delay.
Ensuring your pet’s health is always a priority, and it’s better to seek professional guidance if you’re uncertain about the type of veterinary care needed. Don’t hesitate to reach out to East Ridge Animal Hospital for advice and support. We are here to assist you and provide the appropriate care for your furry companion.
