Signs of a Veterinary Emergency
Pets cannot communicate with us like humans can, so it may be difficult to tell when they are in pain or facing a veterinary emergency. Furthermore, pets are really good at hiding when they are in pain due to their natural instincts. That is why it is our job as pet parents to recognize when our pets may be experiencing a veterinary emergency.
If your pet is experiencing any of the following symptoms, give us a call at (630) 960-2900.
Symptoms of a Pet Emergency Include:
- Rapid or labored breathing
- Weakness, loss of consciousness, or disorientation
- Persistent vomiting or diarrhea
- Bloody urine, stool, or vomit
- Difficulty urinating or pooping
- Bleeding or serious injury/trauma
- Accidental ingestion of medication, inedible objects, or a toxic substance
These are only some of the many symptoms that may constitute a pet emergency. If you have any questions about whether your pet's situation is an emergency, give us a call. Our qualified staff is standing by, ready to assist you.
