Emergency Care

Animal emergencies have a tendency of arising at the most inopportune moments, so it is important to have a plan of action. If you think your pet is experiencing a medical emergency, do not wait to contact us; it is so much better to be safe than sorry.

During a medical emergency, your pet may exhibit the following symptoms:

  • Frequent vomiting and/or retching
  • Frequent bouts of diarrhea or straining
  • Difficulty breathing (heavy or shallow)
  • Bloated or distended abdominal area
  • Hyperthermia (heat stroke) or hypothermia (low body temperature)
  • Straining to urinate
  • Blood in urine
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Trauma; includes getting hit by a car, falling out of a window, getting into a fight with other animals, etc.
  • Injury or irritation to the eyes
  • Exposure to poison or toxic chemicals
  • Inability to deliver offspring
  • Burns
  • Lacerations or bleeding wounds
