What Constitutes an Emergency:

Vomiting

It is not uncommon for a pet to eat something that he or she shouldn’t, and the pet becomes sick and vomits. If your pet has been vomiting for over 24 hours, it is time to pay a visit to the animal clinic. Excessive vomiting can cause your pet to become dangerously dehydrated.

Visible Injuries

It is not uncommon for a pet to eat something that he or she shouldn’t, and the pet becomes sick and vomits. If your pet has been vomiting for over 24 hours, it is time to pay a visit to the animal clinic. Excessive vomiting can cause your pet to become dangerously dehydrated.

The Ingestion of Toxic Substances

If your pet has ingested anything toxic, or even if you suspect that he or she, you should take your pet to the emergency animal clinic right away. Toxic substances can cause your pet to become very ill, and could possibly be fatal. A few examples of toxic substances include:

  • chocolate
  • onions
  • grapes
  • prescription or over the counter medication
  • fertilizer and certain types of mulch

Excessive Weight Loss

If your pet has lost a significant amount of body weight in a relatively short period, you should take your pet to see the veterinarian right away. Excessive weight loss is a sign of a serious illness that should be treated immediately.

Excessive Thirst

If you find that your pet is drinking much more than usual and your pet has not been overexerted or spent too much time in the hot sun, it is time for an emergency visit to the veterinarian. Excessive thirst can be a symptom of a serious health condition such as diabetes. This condition can be deadly if left untreated; therefore, you should take your pet to the veterinarian as soon as possible.

Trauma

If your pet has been hit by a car or stepped on, you should seek emergency pet care immediately. Even if there are no signs of visible injury, your pet could be suffering from internal injuries.

Difficulty Breathing

If your pet is having trouble breathing, you should go to the veterinarian immediately. Your pet could be suffering from a lung or a heart issue that can be life-threatening. If your pet is having any trouble breathing, he or she will require emergency pet care.
