When Your Pet Needs Their Vet ASAP

We get it, accidents happen, emergencies surprise us, and that worrisome feeling like something just isn't right has settled in your mind. Just like urgent care for humans, Sacramento Cat Hospital offers treatment that bridges the gap between routine exams and emergency care.

Simply put, pet urgent care is whenever you find yourself thinking, "Something isn't right—my pet needs veterinary attention now." If you notice your pet showing signs of discomfort, we're here to thoroughly assess their condition and provide the necessary care.

Our urgent care services are tailored specifically for cats and can often provide quicker attention and a more cost-effective option compared to emergency clinics.

When To Visit An Emergency Hospital

Some situations require immediate attention at an emergency hospital. These include:

  • Collapse or loss of consciousness
  • Paralysis
  • Choking
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Stopped breathing
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Trauma or accident, such as falling or being hit by a car
  • Distressed mother in labor/inability to deliver kittens

While we're always eager to assist, emergency hospitals are better equipped to handle these critical cases for the best possible outcome. Please locate the nearest emergency hospital and bring your cat there promptly.
