Is It an Emergency?

Not sure if your pet is really having an emergency? Look for these signs.

Slide 1
Wheezing or panting heavily

Your pet could be having trouble breathing, or they might be experiencing a heart condition. The only way to know for sure is to contact our emergency vets.

Slide 5
Heatstroke

Heatstroke is often characterized by heavy panting, drooling, and fever. Don’t attempt to cool your pet down yourself or give them ice-cold water--call us immediately.

Slide 5
Snake bite

Trembling, muscle twitching, weakness in the hind legs, and heavy salivation are all signs commonly associated with a snake bite.

Slide 2
Hard, bloated stomach

A hard, distended abdomen could be a sign of gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV). Typically known as bloat, this is a life-threatening condition where the stomach fills up with gas or fluid and becomes twisted.

Slide 3
Vomiting repeatedly

Your pet may have ingested something highly toxic, or they swallowed a foreign object they can’t digest. Excessive vomiting can quickly dehydrate your pet, so don’t hesitate to call us.

Slide 4
Not urinating

If you’ve noticed that your pet has not been urinating over the last couple of days, they could have a blockage. Male cats tend to have this problem, and it can be fatal.

What’s the Difference Between Emergency and Urgent Care?

There are emergencies, and then there are urgent cases that may not be as severe as emergencies, but are no less deserving of medical attention.

If your pet has a problem that is not life-threatening but still needs to be addressed before it gets worse, we can provide urgent care. Urgent care situations might include shallow lacerations, minor burns, intestinal parasites, lameness, and issues of the skin and nails.
