Western Veterinary Center, Medical & Surgical Center (WVC) offers comprehensive emergency and urgent care services for unexpected pet health issues. Our advanced capabilities allow us to treat a full range of urgent and emergent situations with the aim of alleviating pain and stabilizing your beloved pet.

Understanding the difference between emergency and urgent care for your pet is important in times of distress.

Urgent Care: Addressing Non-Life-Threatening Conditions

Orthopedic surgery focuses on treating conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system, including bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Orthopedic surgery can effectively treat a wide range of conditions in animals, such as fractures, dislocations, torn ligaments, and joint degeneration.

Critical Care and Emergency: For Life-Threatening Conditions

Critical care and emergency are designated for life-threatening conditions that require immediate intervention. Situations such as respiratory distress, collapse, inability to walk, pale gums, or trauma (for example, being hit by a car or near-drowning incidents) fall under this category. When faced with such dire situations, we urge pet owners or referring veterinarians to call us immediately and bring the pet in as soon as possible.

Hospitalization: 24-Hour Support When Your Pet Needs It Most

WVC provides 24-hour hospitalization services for pets requiring intensive care. Our hospitalization capabilities extend to oxygen-dependent and isolation cases for pets with highly contagious diseases. This service allows your pet to receive the continuous, specialized care they require within our facility.
