When should my pet seek urgent care vs. emergency care

Urgent Care is the middle ground between your primary care provider and the Emergency Department. If your pet has a non-life-threatening minor illness or injury, SFAMC's same-day urgent care may be the best option. If the condition of your pet is life-threatening, go to the SFAMC emergency department, which is open 24 hours monday-sunday. Learn more about our emergency service.
