For medical problems that are not life-threatening, your first option should always be to call your primary care veterinarian. As the team that knows your pet best, they will be able to discuss your pet's status and let you know how they can help. However, when your primary care vet is closed or has a full schedule, Pieper's Urgent Care can help.
Urgent Care is for pets who need to be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible, but are stable and not in immediate danger. If your pet requires hospitalization or the care of a specialist, they can be transported to our Middletown ER for seamless continuation of care.
Not sure if your pet should go to Urgent Care or the Emergency Room? Please feel free to contact us.
Urgent Care can help with:
- Limping or not bearing weight on one leg
- Rashes, hotspots, or itchiness
- Frequent urination
- Coughing, sneezing, or reverse sneezing
- Discharge from the eyes, red eyes, or itchy eyes
- Vomiting or diarrhea (less than 24 hours duration)
- Nail injuries
- Itchy or painful ears
- Decreased appetite or lethargy
If your pet is experiencing any serious or critical symptoms, please contact our Emergency Hospital immediately.
If you're ever concerned about your pet, feel they are acting "off," or would just like them to be seen for peace of mind, we always encourage you to bring your pet in to be evaluated by a doctor.
