When is it a pet care emergency?
Many pet owners are unsure whether their animal requires an immediate trip to the hospital, even though they know something is wrong. Here are some criteria for utilizing our emergency care services:
- Bleeding—Any wound that cannot be easily closed up by a bandage requires immediate veterinary care.
- Consumption of toxins or foreign objects—If you know your dog or cat swallowed something like rat poison, a sock, or other objects, do not hesitate to bring him or her in. We can often avoid a crisis by inducing vomiting and saving your pet from costly surgery.
- Convulsions and seizures—These are symptoms of potentially serious health issues. Please bring your pet to see us right away.
- Pain—If your pet seems uncomfortable, lethargic, or disoriented, he or she may be in serious pain.
- Trauma—Swelling, bite wounds, lacerations—these all require immediate care.
- Vomiting or diarrhea—If your dog or cat cannot keep food down or is suddenly and repetitively ill, they need our immediate care.
These are not the only life-threatening problems your pet may face; they’re simply examples to give you an idea of what to expect. If you’re unsure, play it safe and come in right away.
