What to Expect During an Urgent Care Visit
Just like humans, our cats can experience accidents and injuries that require urgent veterinary care. Sometimes it may be difficult to determine if your pet is experiencing a trauma that warrants a visit to an emergency hospital, or if their symptoms are those of something less serious. If you are unsure whether your cat is in need of veterinary trauma services, here are the most common reasons to seek emergency care for pets.
Diarrhea and Vomiting
If your pet displays any of the following eye symptoms, it’s important to contact us immediately.
- Inflamed, swollen, or drooping eyelids
- Sneezing, nasal discharge, or another symptom of respiratory distress
- Red eyes
- Pawing or rubbing at the eyes
- Discharge coming from the eyes
- Cloudy iris
- Squinting and constant blinking
Wounds and Lacerations
Urinary Tract Infections
One of the first symptoms of a UTI in your pet may be that he or she has had a few “accidents” around the house. If you notice this, then it’s a good idea to look for other symptoms of a UTI. These can be any of the following:
- Pinkish stains where your cat has urinated due to blood in the urine
- Changes in urination habits – either going more frequently or less
- Signs of pain while urinating
- Excessive licking of the genital area
- Dribbling small amounts of urine
