Is This an Emergency?
When should you take your pet to an emergency care facility? Obviously, problems such as trauma, seizures, or severe vomiting or diarrhea need immediate attention. But, what about minor problems? How do you know if you should take your pet to the hospital in the middle of the night or wait until your veterinarian opens the next morning?
A good general guideline is: If in doubt, seek emergency care. Many serious conditions may appear as a minor problem. Your pet canít always communicate how much pain he or she is in. So, if you are in doubt, please seek emergency care for your pet.
