Signs of a Dog or Cat Emergency

A situation that requires a visit to an emergency vet clinic is not always obvious. Some emergencies happen much more subtly. If you’re ever unsure whether your pet requires urgent medical attention, please don’t hesitate to contact us or one of the after-hours hospitals listed above. We’ll be able to assess your pet’s condition over the phone and can instruct you on whether or not you need to bring them to us.

Some symptoms, however, definitely indicate an emergency and you should bring them to a veterinarian right away.

Emergency signs include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Excessive panting or rapid breathing
  • Blood in urine, stool, or vomit
  • Excessive vomiting or diarrhea
  • Disorientation or difficulty standing
  • Seizures
  • Blunt force trauma
  • Unconsciousness
  • Change in body temperature

If your pet needs emergency vet care, please call ahead if possible so we can be prepared for you when you arrive.
