What is Considered a Pet Emergency

By knowing the signs of a pet emergency, you can act quickly and potentially prevent a minor issue from becoming a major one. It's also important to note that some pets may not show obvious signs of distress, so it's crucial to be aware of any changes in their behavior or appearance.

Common Pet Emergency Warning Signs

Here are some of the most common warning signs of a pet emergency:

  • Difficulty breathing or excessive panting
  • Vomiting or diarrhea that lasts for more than 24 hours
  • Inability to urinate or defecate
  • Severe lethargy or weakness
  • Loss of appetite or refusal to eat
  • Excessive drooling or foaming at the mouth
  • Seizures or convulsions
  • Bleeding or wounds that won't stop bleeding
  • Difficulty standing or walking
  • Unusual behavior or aggression
  • Swollen or bloated abdomen
  • Pale gums or tongue
  • Ingestion of a toxic substance or foreign object

If you notice any of these signs in your pet, it's important to seek immediate veterinary care.
