HOW DO I KNOW IF MY PET IS HAVING AN EMERGENCY?

Emergencies often happen out of the blue, and when they do, they may not always seem like an emergency.

LOOK FOR THESE SIGNS TO SEE IF IMMEIDATE ACTION IS NEEDED:

  • Pale gums

  • Labored breathing

  • Limping

  • Lethargy

  • Hiding/crouching

  • A hard, bloated abdomen

  • Hasn’t had food or drink for 24 hours

  • Vomiting and diarrhea

  • Lack of coordination/not walking straight

  • Collapse

  • Wheezing/coughing/gagging

  • Bleeding from nose

  • Trembling

  • Seizures

  • Hit by a car, fell from a height, or suffered bite wounds (puncture wounds often do more damage than is seen on the surface)

  • Seems to be in a lot of pain when touched
