Recognizing an Emergency in Your Dog or Cat

Emergency situations in our pets are not always obvious, and delayed action can cause more damage or even death. To help you more readily recognize pet emergencies, we’ve come up with a list of common emergency situations and symptoms to watch for in dogs and cats. If your pet experiences any of these, don’t hesitate to take them to an emergency vet right away:

  • Traumatic injuries (hit by a car, falling from a great height, etc.)
  • Bleeding from the eyes, ears, nose, or mouth
  • Vomiting/diarrhea for more than 24 hours
  • Deep wounds that won’t stop bleeding
  • Blood in vomit, urine, or stool
  • Encounter or fight with a wild animal
  • Difficulty or inability to urinate
  • Pressing head against the wall (may indicate a neural problem)
  • Ingestion of a known toxin (contact ASPCA poison control if you're unsure if what your pet has eaten is toxic)
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Seizures
  • Bloated abdomen that feels hard to the touch
  • Unable to walk or stand
  • Fever (ears and nose feel hot)
  • Eye injuries

If you are ever concerned about your pet’s health for any reason, please call us at our Hospital in the East End (510) 521-6608 or our Clinic in the West End (510) 521-5775 and we’ll offer guidance and advice on what to do.
