When to Seek Emergency or Urgent Care
for Your Pet

As your pet’s veterinarian, we suggest bringing them in as soon as possible if you suspect something may be wrong. Even if it turns out to be a relatively minor problem, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and seek prompt veterinary care. It’s always been to overreact to a minor problem than ignore a serious one! 

Additionally, there are several symptoms in situations in which you should always bring your companion in for a check-up. These symptoms and situations include: 
  • Repeated episodes of vomiting/diarrhea
  • Refusal to eat and/or drink for more than 24 hours
  • Straining to pass urine or feces
  • Complications during pregnancy, labor, or delivery
  • Injuries sustained in car accidents, falls, and fights with other animals
  • Unexplained behavioral changes, especially aggression
  • Crying out in pain
  • Refusal to put weight on a paw
  • Ingestion of/exposure to known toxins
  • Blood in urine/stool or from any orifice
  • Extreme lethargy
  • Seizures, collapse, or loss of consciousness
This list is by no means exhaustive. Again, we suggest reaching out to us right away if you think something might be wrong with your pet. Keep in mind that animals often remain stoic while suffering from illnesses and injuries. Even if your pet is only showing minor symptoms, there could be something much more serious going on.
