Is It An Emergency?

VEC CantonInjuries and signs of illness in your pet are not always clear-cut, and it can be difficult to know what requires urgent attention and what can wait. Because even minor issues may progress quickly into major life-threatening problems, you should always call your veterinarian when you’re unsure. He or she will help you assess the problem and, if necessary, guide you to the appropriate care at an emergency center like ours.

Come right in if your pet is experiencing any of the following:

  • Unconsciousness or collapse
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Bleeding
  • Pale, greyish or blue gums
  • Profuse vomiting or diarrhea
  • Blood in the feces, urine or vomit
  • Unusual or erratic behavior
  • Signs of extreme pain, such as whining or trembling
  • Prolonged periods of not eating
  • Swollen and/or painful abdomen
  • Straining to urinate or defecate
  • Prolonged straining during labor and delivery
  • Suspected or confirmed ingestion of foreign objects or toxins
  • Eye injury
  • Traumatic injury from a fall or collision with a moving vehicle
  • Bite wounds or other injuries sustained in an encounter with another animal

Please don’t hesitate to call us if you have any questions or concerns.
