Our Urgent Care and Walk-In Care Can Handle Your Pet’s Unexpected Ailments
Our veterinary urgent care functions like urgent care in the human medicine arena. In essence, urgent care is designed as mid-level care that falls between regular preventive care and true emergency care. You’ll bring your cat or dog in for issues that can’t wait for a primary care veterinary appointment, but don’t require a full emergency room’s resources.
At Curem Veterinary Care, we offer urgent care outpatient services outside typical general practice availability. Our urgent care services are available anytime we are open. We accept walk-in patients until an hour before closing time.
Using Our Urgent Care and Walk-In Services
These services are available to new and existing patients. You are not required to have a pre-existing patient relationship at Curem Veterinary Care. We want you and your pet to have what you need, when you need it and will work with your primary care veterinarian for any follow up.
We offer two walk-in urgent care waiting list choices:
- Bring your pet straight into the practice, get checked-in, and wait in person.
- Call ahead to secure your spot on the waitlist and we will advise you of the lead time. Then, either wait for your time slot at home or bring your pet and wait in person.
Our veterinary team will perform any needed diagnostic tests that enable us to provide feline and canine patients with targeted first-aid and treatment. In addition, we address minor-to-moderate illnesses and injuries. Urgent care and walk-in care services include (but are not limited to):
- Cactus Thorns
- Difficulty Urinating
- Ear Infections
