In Case of an Emergency

As we all have probably experienced at some point, emergencies rarely occur at convenient times, and sometimes it’s difficult to know whether a situation constitutes a true emergency. If you are unsure, please call our office or the emergency clinics in the area and ask for guidance. As a general guideline, situations that could be true emergencies include:

  • Trauma, such as getting hit by a car or attacked by another animal
  • Active bleeding
  • Suspected “Bloat” (tight, swollen, painful abdomen and/or gagging or unproductive vomiting)
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Blue or pale gum color
  • Difficulty urinating (especially in male cats)
  • Collapse or loss of consciousness
  • Seizures
  • Difficulty giving birth
  • Eye injuries
  • Possible broken bones
  • Any suspected poisoning
  • Excessive watery, bloody diarrhea
  • Persistent vomiting

If you have an emergency outside of our regular business hours, we recommend that you contact one of the following emergency facilities. Please keep in mind that they treat emergencies only.
