Emergency Indicators and Concerns

We do not feel it is safe to treat pets, experiencing a true medical or traumatic emergency, in the home.

If your pet is experiencing an emergency, or if you are ever in doubt about the condition of your pet, and you can't see your regular vet, we recommend taking your pet to one of the emergency veterinary hospitals below.

Short of witnessed traumatic injuries (such a large fall, open wounds, being hit by a vehicle), it may not always be obvious your pet is in need of emergency care.

If you notice some of the following signs and symptoms in your pet, we recommend that you visit an emergency hospital:


  • Severe difficulty breathing
  • Open mouth breathing/panting
  • Unable to urinate (male cats)
  • Sudden paralysis of the hind end
  • Bloody diarrhea or vomiting
  • Known ingestion of toxins


  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sudden Collapse
  • Bloody diarrhea or vomiting
  • Severe, debilitating pain
  • Known ingestion of toxins
