When to Seek Emergency Veterinary Care


Doctors Tubbs and Goldman both agree that the easiest answer as to whether you should seek emergency care for a pet is when you feel his or her medical condition is serious and cannot wait. However, the following general situations should help you determine if you need to seek out emergency care for your pet:

  • Difficulty breathing

  • Acute abdominal swelling

  • Electric shock

  • Excessive vomiting or diarrhea

  • Excessive bleeding

  • Exhibits symptoms of heat stroke

  • Repetitive and prolonged seizures

  • Snake bites

  • High or low temperature (more than 104 or less than 100 degrees)

  • Unable to urinate or defecate
