Pet Emergency Care in San Diego
Our Pet Vets knows the urgency of a loving pet owner who wants to get help for their furry family member. If you've experienced a pet emergency, you know how stressful it can be to find a veterinarian you can trust. Our animal clinic in San Diego can help your pet get urgent care when it matters most.
What Is a Pet Emergency?
An animal emergency is any time your pet needs immediate medical attention and you are unable to contact your regular veterinarian. If your pet is displaying any of the following symptoms, call us immediately or bring it in for treatment:
- Choking or difficulty breathing
- Excessive bleeding
- Blood in vomit or stool
- Inability to urinate or defecate
- Ingestion of a poisonous substance
- Severe trauma, such as being hit by a car
- Sudden collapse
If you are unsure whether or not your pet's condition is an emergency, please err on the side of caution and give us a call. We would rather you bring in a pet that turns out not to need emergency care than wait too long to get help for a serious condition.
What Is Pet Urgent Care?
Pet urgent care is similar to emergency care in that it is for when your pet needs immediate medical attention, but the difference is that in an urgent care situation, you may be able to wait for a same-day appointment with a vet. If your animal is displaying serious symptoms, call us and we will do our best to accommodate you as soon as possible.
