What is a Pet Emergency?

Pet emergencies are not always obvious, so it can be hard to tell when your pet needs urgent care. The following situations are those which demand urgent care for your pet, so call us right away if you notice:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Vomiting/diarrhea for more than 24 hours
  • Blood in vomit, urine, or stool
  • Eye injuries
  • Disorientation or confusion
  • Traumatic injury such as being hit by a car
  • Encounter with a wild animal
  • Seizures
  • Collapse
  • Pressing head against the wall

If ever your pet is acting strangely, it’s a good idea to call us so we can assess the situation over the phone and give you advice to take the best care of your pet. Call us at (954) 792-6323 whenever you have questions.
