You know your pet better than anyone, so if you notice changes in their behavior or believe they are sick or hurt, it is probably a good idea to seek emergency care. Emergency situations include:
  • Pet won’t respond to you
  • Has difficulty breathing
  • Collapsed or can’t stand
  • Seizing or acting strangely
  • Hit by a car
  • Bitten by another animal
  • Ingested poisons, medications or objects
  • Vomiting
  • Severe diarrhea
  • Difficulty urinating
