Urgent care is the delivery of care to treat an illness or injury requiring immediate attention, but not serious enough to require an emergency room visit. An illness or injury that does not appear to be life-threatening, but cannot wait until the next day, can be treated at an urgent care center. PetMedic treats a wide range of conditions, but for life-threatening issues, please bring your pet to the nearest emergency center.

When to seek emergency care:
Traumatic injury | Major surgeries | Critical care | Difficulty birthing | Heart failure | Head trauma | White or blue gum color
