Urgent Care and Walk-In Exams

If you notice your animal has a wound, please call Fairgrounds Animal Hospital at 775-329-4106 and bring your animal in for an Urgent Care exam.

Dog and cat fight wounds and bites are unfortunately a frequent occurrence we see year-round. Often times, the fight may be between animals from the same family but can also be from another dog at the dog park or walking along the street.

It’s 5 pm on a Friday evening and you have just come home from a long day at work. When you walk in the door, you notice that your intact (not spayed), female dog is lethargic, painful and vomiting. You rush her to your veterinarian’s office for an urgent care visit and they diagnose her with a pyometra. They explain that a pyometra is an infected uterus and the best chance she has for survival is a $1000-2000 emergency surgery to remove the infected uterus or it can become life threatening.
