Signs Indicating an Emergency

It is important to know your pet well and monitor it so you can determine if it is showing unusual symptoms. While there are many different signs that indicate that your pet needs emergency care, here are just a few:

  • Sudden, unexplained aggression
  • Broken bones
  • Unexplained balance issues
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Extreme lethargy
  • Vomiting and diarrhea
  • Severe bleeding
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Sudden loss of hearing or sight
  • Drinking far more fluids than normal
  • Abnormal and sudden weight loss
  • Strange and sudden weight gain
  • Unexplained rashes or puss coming from the eyes, nose, or mouth

If you find your pet showing any of these symptoms, try to keep the animal calm. Protect yourself from bites.
