Signs Your Pet Needs Emergency Veterinary Care

It is important to understand when your pet is truly having an emergency—not only so you can ensure he or she receives timely care when needed, but also to help eliminate unnecessary trips to our veterinary hospital when emergency care is not needed.

Do not wait to seek emergency veterinary care in Granville or the nearby areas if your pet exhibits any of the following symptoms:

  • Sluggishness, loss of interest in previously enjoyable activities (playing, walks, etc.), and lethargy
  • Excessive vomiting (several times in succession) or vomiting blood
  • Bloody stool, mucus in the stool, excessive straining, or diarrhea for 24+ hours
  • Obvious signs of pain (whining, whimpering, flinching at the touch, shaking, etc.)
  • Hard, swollen, or distended abdomen
  • Difficulties breathing, including excessive panting
  • Sudden collapse or inability/unwillingness to stand or get up from sitting/lying down
  • Loss of consciousness, seizure, or stopped breathing
  • Obvious broken bones, open wounds, poisoning, and other traumatic injuries

Note that other symptoms indicate you should bring your pet to see a veterinarian as soon as possible, but he or she may not require emergency care. These may include changes in appetite/thirst, signs of worms, sudden weight loss or gain, unusual stool, vomiting once or twice only, and more. However, if your pet is displaying any unusual symptoms, it’s always best to see a vet right away.
