About Urgent Care
Sometimes pets develop health problems that aren't life-threatening but require immediate attention. These situations can be classified as urgent care. Lincoln Animal Hospital in Cypress, CA, offers outpatient urgent care services to sick or injured pets whose condition isn't critical but should be evaluated right away.
