Belmont, NC

Featured Case

This is Cheyenne. She came into UrgentVet’s flagship clinic in Belmont, North Carolina not feeling well. Her pet parent was concerned that she had something caught in the back of her mouth after playing with sticks.

The team gave Cheyenne some mild sedation so they could have good look inside of her mouth. Sure enough – there was a large stick embedded sideways in her throat. The stick was removed and Cheyenne went home to recover from her ordeal.

We checked with her pet parents the following day and they advised that she was feeling much better – eating, drinking, and of course – playing..

Featured Case

Meet Daisy – a beautiful dog who loves bones.

Daisy was chewing a circular bone when it became lodged over her bottom jaw. Her pet parents brought her right in and with a little light sedation and our Fear-Free approach, we were able to safely cut the bone off.

Daisy wanted to take it with her, but everyone was in agreement she’d had enough bones for one day.

Belmont, NC

Featured Case

Meet Sunshine! This gorgeous girl came into Urgent Vet Belmont due to weight loss and increased appetite. Her pet parent also noticed that she would also vomit a lot after she would eat.

We took a little blood to check her thyroid level. Sunshine was hyper-thyroid which means that her metabolism was in high gear. So, although she is eating and drinking just fine, she’s still losing weight because of a higher metabolism rate.

We prescribed some medications to put her back on a normal metabolism track. She will need to have her thyroid levels rechecked in about a month to make sure her medication dose is correct. We referred her back to her regular veterinarian for this on-going care.
