24 Hour On-Call Consultation Available For Emergencies Only
Problems, Causes, and Actions
Breathing Difficulties/Labored Breathing:
Coupled with pale or bluish mucous membranes of the mouth and gums — may indicate heart failure, lung disease, or a major chemical imbalance.
Apply direct pressure to the wound and seek medical help immediately.
If your pet has fallen, been struck by a moving vehicle, or suffers multiple wounds from an unseen accident, see a veterinarian… even if your pet initially appears unharmed.
Head Tilt or Seizure:
Both of these symptoms may indicate a central nervous system problem that requires immediate attention.
Lacerations & Bite Wounds:
Wounds that penetrate the skin are contaminated and may become infected within several hours. Many wounds that seem minor on the surface often hide more extensive injuries to vital tissues below.
Loss of Consciousness:
Illness or injury can make your pet too weak to stand. Neurological problems can impair or prevent normal movement and further attempts at walking may result in even greater injury.
When you know or suspect that your pet has ingested a poisonous substance, call your veterinarian or emergency facility immediately to receive emergency instructions and to assess the need for additional medical treatment.
