Several circumstances necessitate bringing your pet in for immediate treatment:
- Vomiting/Diarrhea: A single episode of vomiting or diarrhea may not be a serious cause for concern. However, recurring incidents necessitate a trip to the emergency vet since more serious issues might be at play.
- Problems Breathing: Your pet needs emergency medical care if they are having trouble breathing. Do not be reluctant to seek help, especially if your pet’s gums appear pale.
- Weakness or Collapse: If a pet falls abruptly or appears to be unusually weak, it may be an indication of a serious issue, such as a cardiac condition, internal bleeding, or organ malfunction.
- Loss of Control of Hind Legs: Due to spinal abnormalities, breeds like Corgis and Dachshunds frequently have this condition. This kind of paralysis is frequently curable, but only with quick veterinary care.
- Major Trauma: Bring your pet in immediately if they've been seriously injured by a car, a fall, an animal attack, or experienced any other sort of severe trauma. Even if they appear to be in good health on the surface, they might have internal injuries.
