What to Expect at Emergency Pet Care in West Palm Beach
When you bring your pet into All Care Animal Clinic for urgent care, the first step is to provide triage. This means assessing your pet’s condition and the urgency of the situation. The next step is to provide the appropriate treatment.
For some emergencies like car accidents, your pet might require a range of diagnostics to determine the extent of their injuries. We use blood work, x-rays, urinalysis, and ultrasounds to determine the cause of your pet’s distress. Getting an accurate diagnosis is the key to prioritizing what needs to be done and getting it done fast.
