Clove came into UrgentVet – Richardson with a case of congestion.
Our doctor examined her and sent home some medications to help relieve symptoms.
We also asked that she check in with her regular vet within a week to ensure continued care. Get well soon Clove!
Blue’s pet parents brought him in after they noticed he wasn’t eating as much as usual. He also had some blood in his stool.
We examined Blue and administered a medication that promotes immunity and healthy digestion.
As always, we recommended Blue check in with his regular vet in the days for continued care.
