Recognizing Emergency Vet Situations
Some pet emergencies are very obvious and alarming, but others may be more subtle. Contact us or reach out to The Village Vets 24-Hour Emergency if you observe any of the following:
- Difficulty breathing
- Disorientation or trouble walking straight
- Suspected broken bones
- Excessive vomiting or diarrhea
- Blood in vomit, stool, or urine
- Struggle to urinate (particular to male cats)
- Ingestion of a toxin
- Signs of extreme pain
(whining, vocalizing, wincing when touched, etc.)
It’s always better to be safe than sorry. Even if you think your pet’s condition may not warrant a visit to the emergency vet, please call our hospital or contact The Village Vets 24-Hour Emergency at (404) 371-9774. We want to help you and make sure your pet is safe!
