Reasons your Pet Needs an Emergency Vet

Pet emergencies are not always obvious, and it can be difficult to determine whether your pet requires urgent attention, or you can wait till when your regular vet is available. Here are some of the most common pet emergencies that should be dealt with as soon as possible:

  • Toxin ingestion
  • Parvovirus
  • Dietary indiscretion
  • Foreign body gastrointestinal obstruction
  • Pancreatitis
  • Kidney or liver disease
  • Intestinal parasites
  • Addison’s disease

The most common pet toxins include:

  • Grapes or raisins
  • Household plants such as Lilies
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications
  • Chocolate
  • Foods containing Xylitol
  • Acetaminophen
  • Recreational drugs like marijuana
  • Rodenticides

Call our emergency vet if your pet is:

  • Straining to urinate
  • Vomiting
  • Going in and out of the litter box
  • Excessively grooming the urogenital area
  • Vocalizing while in the litter box
  • Lethargic or restless
  • Suffering from bite wounds or lacerations
  • Ingested a foreign object
  • Experiencing breathing difficulties

We will not be able to determine what is wrong without first assessing and examining your pet in detail. Our vet will evaluate your pet’s condition and provide them with medical care accordingly.
