When your pet needs a vet ASAP

What Is Urgent Care?

What Is Urgent Care?

Similar to urgent care for people, we are able to provide treatment that falls between routine exams and emergency care. Essentially, urgent care for pets is whenever you think to yourself, “I think something’s wrong — a vet should take a look at this ASAP.” If you sense your pet is experiencing discomfort, we’d be happy to check things out. Most vets can’t accommodate same-day appointments or walk-ins, but we’re always available right when you need us.

Have a middle-of-the-night, early-in-the-morning, or just-can’t-wait medical question about your cat or dog? We’re here for you 24/7. Give us a call at (212) 624-BOND — a veterinary professional will answer your questions, walk you through next steps, and let you know if a visit to the ER is necessary. We’re pet parents, too, and know there’s nothing like peace of mind for your pet, especially for the price of $0.

Reasons to Seek Urgent Care

We get a lot of questions about what urgent care is — it’s a new concept, especially in veterinary medicine. Here are some situations that would necessitate urgent care:

  • Bite wounds
  • Worms, fleas, ticks, or mites
  • Urinating blood
  • Urinary changes
  • Toxin ingestion
  • Your pet ate a foreign body (toy, rawhide, etc)
  • Diarrhea or vomiting
  • Itchy skin or rashes
  • Pain or limping
  • Changes in behavior
  • Loss of appetite or overeating
  • Cuts and abrasions
  • Eye issues (tearing, redness, discharge)
  • Ear infections
  • Runny nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • Scooting
  • Hair loss
  • Overgrown nails

At Bond Vet, we practice a hybrid of preventive and urgent care. We’re your primary care veterinarian, but we can also treat your pet if something happens that requires urgent care. Learn more about preventive care here .
