Tips to Avoid Pet Emergencies

The best tip for handling pet emergency situations is to be able to react calmly and decisively, and contact a professional. General signs of complications like the following should encourage you to contact your regular vet or us:

  1. Labored breathing, excessive panting, persistent cough
  2. Vomiting if persistent, bloody or nonproductive
  3. Pain. Pet has trouble getting comfortable, cries, or is painful to the touch
  4. Gums which are not their normal pink color, especially if white, gray or blue
  5. Diarrhea, especially if persistent, bloody or painful
  6. Excessive sleepiness (pet can n’t be roused)
  7. Pus or bloody discharge from any part of the body or surgical incision
  8. Straining to urinate or defecate, especially if nonproductive
  9. Seizures, loss of consciousness or episodes of bizarre behavior.
  10. Pet continues to not eat or drink for more than 24 hours.
