Symptoms Of A Pet Emergency

Normally, the signs that your pet requires the immediate attention of an emergency vet are pretty obvious. They’ll have readily apparent injuries and symptoms such as severe bleeding, large open wounds, broken bones, or unconsciousness as a result of being hit by a car or an attack by another animal.

But often the signs of a medical emergency are harder to see. It’s vitally important for you as a pet owner to be able to recognize the less apparent signs of a health emergency so you’ll know to seek immediate emergency vet care when you see them.

  • Unusual body temperatures, too high or too low
  • Weak or rapid pulse
  • Seizures
  • Pale tongue and gums
  • Vomiting blood
  • Blood in the urine or stool
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Heatstroke symptoms, including vomiting, excessive panting, rapid heartbeat, lethargy
  • Dehydration signs, including diarrhea, panting, and exhaustion

First Aid For Pets

Knowing how to stabilize your pet with basic first aid procedures during transport to your veterinarian in Nanuet, can save their life.

  • Bleeding – Elevate their limbs and apply continuous firm pressure to the wound.
  • Choking – Gently reach into their throat to remove the obstruction or deliver sharp, fast blows to the chest to expel it.
  • CPR – Lay your pet on their back, hold the jaw closed, and blow slowly through their nostrils every few second.

Make your pet as comfortable as possible on your way to the clinic and keep them warm with a blanket. Also, if your pet has a specific medical condition that could require immediate care, ask your vet about first aid treatment for their condition when professional care isn’t immediately available, such as when you’re on a hike or a long trip away from home. And always take any necessary medication along with you.
