When Does My Pet Need Urgent Care?

You know your pet best of all. If you notice any change in behavior or health, it’s best to set up an appointment with your veterinarian. Yet, when is it an emergency situation? To help you decide, we’ve created a list of common pet emergencies. However, if you are ever uncertain of your pet’s health, don’t hesitate to call us at 704-545-3422 or contact one of our 24/7 referral hospitals above.
