Emergency/Hospitalization

 

Emergencies can happen out of the blue, and when they do, they may not always seem like an emergency. It is better to be safe than sorry so if you are concerned please bring your pet in immediately. If you have any questions about whether it is an emergency you can always call us.

Look for these signs to see if immediate 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 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

Occasionally pets need to be hospitalized for supportive care beyond typical outpatient care which includes IV fluids, injectable medications and oxygen therapy. We are able to provide those services here during the day. If your pet needs continued care over night we will assist with a transfer to the local 24 hour care facility.
