What is the process for an urgent pet care or sick visit?

In cases when pets need specialist care, we will be able to assist in managing pain and stabilizing the pet before referring them to a specialist. 

How long will my urgent vet care appointment or sick visit take?

The duration of an urgent care or sick visit can vary based on the condition of the dog or cat and the necessary treatment.

What should I bring with me to my urgent care vet visit?

If you're a Sploot client, we have your pet's medical history on file, so you don't need to bring anything. For new clients, bringing any available medical records is recommended (but not required) for us to treat your pet.

Will my pet need to stay overnight after an urgent care visit?

Whether your pet needs overnight monitoring depends on how severe their condition is. Sploot patients requiring overnight care will be transferred to an emergency hospital.
