Luna

Chapel Hill, NC

Featured Case

Meet Luna – an adorable 9 week old puppy who managed to wiggle out of her pet parent’s arms and fell to the floor.

She arrived at UrgentVet limping – not putting any weight on her front right leg. X-rays showed a broken bone in her foot. The team at UrgentVet treated her with some pain medication and a splint to hold the foot in place.

Luna’s outlook is great. With continued pain management and activity restrictions, she should be just fine.

Mik

Chapel Hill, NC

Featured Case

Mik the hairless cat visited UrgentVet Pet Clinic with a bothersome skin condition. We conducted some diagnostic testing and discovered that Mik had a bacterial infection.

We administered an antibiotic shot to help return Mik’s skin to normal. We also provided our usual hugs and snuggles as part of the treatment plan.

Mik is to follow up with his regular veterinarian to ensure his condition continues to improve.

Chase

Chapel Hill, NC

Featured Case

Little Chase came to us with some bloody diarrhea, which is always concerning to pet parents. We performed fecal testing to determine the cause and the culprit was a Hookworm infestation.

Intestinal parasites are very common in puppies, which is why your primary veterinarian typically performs routine fecal checks as well as multiple rounds of deworming during their puppy appointments! Once your dog is started on a heart worm preventative, it’s common for your pet to receive a monthly de-wormer to prevent further problems.

Chase was treated with medication and orders to be seen by his regular vet. He has recovered and is back to full puppy duties.
