Know the Signs of a Pet Emergency

For a pet owner, it can be hard sometimes to tell if a pet is just uncomfortable or if the situation is serious enough for a call or visit to the veterinarian. It’s important to know what conditions should be considered urgent or have potential to become a true veterinary emergency. Please consider having your pet evaluated by our doctors if he’s displaying any of the following:

  • Labored breathing
  • Weakness, unresponsiveness or collapse
  • Trouble urinating or defecating
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Bleeding or trauma
  • Exposure to toxins
  • Seizing

This list is not exhaustive, and, fortunately, not every medical situation your pet faces will be an emergency. If you’re not sure whether your pet’s symptoms indicate a serious health problem, we can help with that, too. When you need peace of mind, give us a call. We’re always here to answer questions and offer guidance with any pet health concern. When it comes to emergency pet care in Carthage, we’re here to help you and your pet at every step along the road to recovery. Just give us a call at 417-358-1300.
