& Urgent Care

We provide quality care when pets need it most!

An emergency involving your beloved pet

is likely one of your worst fears.
While you might not want to think about your furry friend suffering from a severe injury or illness, you need to know where to turn if such a situation arises. At Mariemont Veterinary Clinic, we provide urgent and emergency care for pets in Cincinnati during our regular business hours. We understand this is a stressful time and will do everything we can to help your companion in need.

Knowing When Your Pet Needs Emergency Care

As a pet parent, knowing when to seek emergency care for your companion isn’t always easy. After all, they can’t tell you when they’re hurting or not feeling well! Instead, it’s up to you to keep a close eye on them and seek prompt veterinary care if something seems seriously wrong. We always recommend being cautious when it comes to something as important as your pet's health. However, there are some symptoms and situations in which emergency care is always warranted, including: 
  • Severe lacerations
  • Uncontrollable bleeding
  • Seizures or loss of consciousness
  • Extreme lethargy
  • Collapse
  • Respiratory distress/choking
  • Injuries sustained in fights with other animals, car accidents, and falls
  • Difficulty during labor and delivery
  • Refusal to eat or drink for 24+ hours
  • Straining to pass urine or feces
  • Repeated vomiting or diarrhea 
  • Bleeding from any orifice
  • Sudden extreme behavior changes
  • Signs of heat stroke
  • Crying out in pain
This list is not exhaustive. If you have any reason to think something may be seriously wrong, contact us right away — even if your pet isn’t exhibiting any of the symptoms above. It’s always best to listen to your instincts and bring them in for a checkup when something isn’t right.

The Difference Between
Urgent Care and Emergency Care

Pet urgent care and pet emergency care are similar, but knowing the difference between the two is crucial for keeping your pet healthy during a stressful situation. If your pet is experiencing any symptoms that could signal a life-threatening condition (like those mentioned above), you need to consider that as emergency care.

Any non-life-threatening but pressing issues such as rashes/minor skin irritations, scratching at the mouth or ears, or mild injuries that cannot wait for an appointment are urgent. In either case, contact us immediately if something seems out of the ordinary with your pet, and we will help you make the right decision!
