What to Expect from Urgent Pet Care
A pet emergency and making a trip to urgent care can be stressful and scary. To help alleviate some of that stress, here is what you can expect when you visit Aspen Grove Urgent Pet Care.
Triage and Reception
Whether you have a scheduled appointment or you walk in needing medical attention for your pet, you will be greeted by a specially-trained receptionist. The medical team will be alerted to your arrival and you’ll be asked to fill some paperwork. An experienced and trained nurse will assess and triage your pet’s condition.
If your pet’s condition is critical or painful we will take immediate steps to stabilize the situation as quickly as possible. This may include administering medications, placing an IV catheter, or oxygen and fluid therapy.
If your pet’s condition is less critical, you may be asked to wait or drop your pet off for care. If you notice that your pet’s condition changes please alert the receptionist right away as their condition may have worsened.
It is our intent to see scheduled appointments and each walk-in patient as soon as possible. Due to the unpredictable nature of urgent care medicine, however, we have no control over wait times. Your patience and understanding will help keep a low-stress environment for other pets and pet owners, as well as the staff.
At Aspen Grove Urgent Pet Care, we offer the payment solutions you need and the medical care your pet deserves. Monthly payment plans available through Care Credit or Scratch Pay. Learn more about our payment policies.

Fort Collins Emergency Vet Care
Medical emergencies can occur suddenly and without warning. In times of a life-threatening accident, or an urgent medical condition it is important for pet owners to have a basic understanding of common veterinary medical emergencies and basic first aid for their pet. At our Fort Collins emergency vet hospital we are experienced urgent pet care providers and are ready to assist with all of your pets needs.
Some emergencies are obvious – a dog runs across the road and is hit by a car. Others may be just as serious, but not as obvious. For example, a German shepherd appears restless after a large meal and tries to vomit; unknown to the owner, this is the beginning of Gastric Dilatation and Volvulus (Bloat), one of the most serious medical emergencies in large breed dogs.
While no one can be prepared for all emergencies, here are some simple steps you should follow and clinical signs to look for if your dog or cat is ill or involved in an accident. Who knows, it just may save your pet’s life. What should I do during a Pet Emergency?
