Featured Case

Penny came into UrgentVet because she was vomiting up rocks! Yes – rocks. She’d been to her doggy daycare and she decided to try this new cuisine while there.

Her pet parent was concerned and wanted to make sure there were no more rocks in her system and that she wasn’t injured.

We examined Penny and X-rays confirmed there were no more rocks in her system and she was sent home with something safer to put in her mouth at playtime.

Featured Case

Meet Gracie! This sweet kitty came into New Port Richey Urgent Vet due to not eating and lethargy.

During the physical exam, our doctor felt that she may have trouble going to the bathroom! We gave her fluids to hydrate and performed a treatment to help relieve those symptoms.

As always, we asked Gracie’s pet parents to check in with her regular vet in the coming day or so. Get well soon, Gracie!
