What is Urgent Care?

Some medical situations with your pet  don't qualify as emergencies, but they also can't wait for an appointment at your regular veterinarian's clinic. That's why we opened Aurora Urgent Veterinary Clinic, where we serve as an urgent care center for pets. Think of us as like a human urgent care center, but for four-legged friends instead!  Our experienced and compassionate staff members are ready to assist your pet with any non-emergency issue that can't wait, ensuring that they receive the prompt veterinary care they need. 

Some issues that we treat as an URGENT CARE are:

  • Ear infections

  • Skin rashes and itching

  • Vomiting or diarrhea

  • Coughing or sneezing

  • Not eating

  • Losing weight

  • Broken toenail

  • Minor wounds

  • Limping

  • Red, gunky or squinty eyes

  • New or irritated lumps and bumps

  • End of life appointments

  • And more!

**As our mission is to help as many pets get the medical care they need in a timely manner, we do not offer vaccinations or elective procedures.  

Health issues that require a visit to your preferred EMERGENCY CLINIC include:

  • Labored breathing

  • Pale or white gums

  • Hit by a car or large/extensive wounds

  • Bloated belly with non-productive retching

  • Actively bleeding, more than just a slow drip

  • Toxin ingestion

  • Collapsed/unable to rise and walk

  • A seizure lasting more than 5 minutes or multiple seizures in a 24 hour period

  • A very rapid and steep decline in health

Have questions?  Give us a call!  We look forward to helping you and your pet.
