Is this an emergency?

Determining whether a situation is an emergency is challenging and difficult for us when we are discussing it over the phone with you. We cannot provide a diagnosis over the phone; that requires an examination. If you are trying to decide whether your pet needs to come to Animal Urgent Care Center in Wheeling, WV, use this list of signs and symptoms typically associated with potentially serious problems to help you choose a course of action.

Ultimately, if you are concerned about your pet, that’s a good enough reason to bring them in for examination. If you choose not to bring them in but continue to be concerned, make an appointment with your veterinarian.
