You think your pet is sick or acting oddly. Should you bring your pet in, or should you wait until morning to see your regular veterinarian? Is something really wrong, or will it pass? These are questions that Emergency Pet Care gets all the time.

 

You know your pet better than we do. If you are concerned enough to call, your pet should probably be seen. We make no attempt to diagnose or treat over the phone. But we will tell you if we think the pet should not wait another moment to be seen. Common cases that require immediate medical attention and which may progress to fatal without treatment are:

 

A deep chested dog with a distended abdomen, possibly attempting to vomit or acting distressed

A cat unable to move its hind limbs and that continues to cry and pant

 

Any pet having difficulty breathing and especially a cat that is panting

 

Hit by a car, even if there are no obvious wounds to the outside internal bleeding can be subtle

 

A bird fluffed and not eating or down at the bottom of the cage

 

A puppy with an incomplete vaccination series that is vomiting or has diarrhea

 

Any vomiting pet unable to keep plain water down
