Common Pet Emergencies

While any sudden disease, accident or trauma can become an emergency, some of the most common include:

  • Heatstroke from being in the sun, a car or a stuffy house too long on hot days
  • Poisoning from plants, chemicals, rat poison, cleaning supplies, medications or other toxic substances
  • Car accidents
  • Ingestion of foreign objects, which can be lodged in the throat, stomach or intestine
  • Animal bites, including other cats, dogs, snakes or stinging insects

Common signs that something is wrong includes drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, inability to walk, crying, heaving, seizing, lethargy and any other abnormal behavior.

What Should You Do in a Pet Emergency?

If you experience a pet emergency, the first thing to do is call a vet and let them know what’s going on so they can instruct you on next steps. Typically, that means containing the pet and keeping them comfortable, either while they recover or you transport them. From there, you can perform any first aid your ER vet tells you to, or bring them to us. If your animal is aggressive due to pain, wait there for help.
