Pet Urgent Care

Our pets are part of the family, and things can get stressful, especially when your pet needs urgent care. An animal hospital offering emergency pet care provides peace of mind for pet owners, because they have someone to rely on when their pet becomes ill or injured after their veterinarian may have gone home.

Our veterinary care team at Westgate Animal Hospital in Maple Ridge, CA, provides various pet care services, including pet wellness exams and urgent care.

Pet Urgent Care

Do I Need Urgent Care for My Pet?

If you are unsure if your pet needs urgent care, it is always best to be safe and call your veterinarian or emergency animal hospital to see what they have to say about your pet's condition. Some common pet urgent care symptoms may include seizures, bleeding from the mouth, nose, or ears, hemorrhaging from a wound, cannot walk or stand.

Other signs your pet needs to see an emergency vet include:

  • Hit by a car
  • Falling from a high place
  • Attacked by another animal
  • Excessive vomiting or diarrhea
  • Having difficulty breathing
  • Ingested a toxin or poisonous plant

Pet Care during an Emergency

During a pet emergency, the first thing you need to remember is to stay calm. Our pets can pick up on our emotions and become stressed if we are stressed or upset over the situation. Once again, stay as calm as possible and ensure you can move your pet. Comfort your pet on the way to the animal hospital by petting and talking to it.

Call our emergency vet on your way to the animal hospital to let them know your pet's symptoms and condition. This information helps our vet and their staff prepare for your arrival.
