Signs Your Pet Needs Emergency Care
When you pet is sick, it can be hard to determine if they are feeling under the weather or experiencing a true emergency. To help you determine what sort of care they need, we have compiled the list of common symptoms below. If you are unsure about your pet’s condition, please do not hesitate to call our clinic. We are here to answer your questions and will help you take proactive measures to preserve your pet’s health.
If your pet is bleeding enough where pressure or a bandage should be applied, contact our clinic ASAP. For small cuts which produce only a little blood, keep and on it to make sure it does not become infected. If your dog or cat is bleeding any amount of blood from their eyes or ears, take them to see a veterinarian right away.
For pets who are experiencing labored breathing or wheezing, you should contact a veterinarian ASAP. In some cases, your pet is experiencing a mild asthmatic attack, but it can also be a sign of severe asthma, heart or lung problems, or a very serious allergic reaction.
Diarrhea or Vomiting
If you pet has experienced diarrhea or vomiting more than once in an hour or more than 3-4 times in a day, call your veterinarian. Be sure to inspect their waste for blood, as this can be a sign of severe internal complications.
Loss of Consciousness or Collapse
This can be a sign of several serious medical issues. Call your veterinarian immediately.
Has your pet been pawing at their abdomen, shying away from having their belly rubbed, or is crouching instead of sitting? This could be a sign they are suffering from internal bleeding, organ disease, a urinary tract infection, or a blockage. For cats, a blockage can become life threatening in a short amount of time. If they go to the litter box, cry, and produce little to no urine, contact our clinic as soon as possible.
Blue, White or Pale Gums
This a sign that your dog or cat is not breathing properly and is not getting enough oxygen. Seek help immediately.
