EMERGENCY UNTIL 10PM : 514.685.VETS (8387)
You know your pet better than anyone – however, pets may be good at hiding pain and signs of illness. Here some help for signs and advice.
HOW TO RECOGNIZE AN EMERGENCY
- A dramatic increase in respiratory rate.
- Changes in gum color or the conjunctiva (the tissues you see by pulling down the lower eyelid), from healthy pink to white, yellow or gray.
- Unusual changes in behavior, such as aggression, unresponsiveness or hiding.
- Dramatic shifts in appetite, thirst, or weight.
- Unusual urination or stools.
- Do not panic – remain calm.
- Protect yourself from injury – pets in pain may scratch or bite. You may want to carefully wrap a large towel or blanket around your pet.
- If there is a chance of back or neck injury, carefully place the pet on a wooden board or padded ironing board and minimize movement during transportation.
- Apply direct pressure or place a tourniquet to any area with active bleeding.
- In case of possible poisoning, seek immediate treatment and bring any product packaging.
- For your pet’s safety, please post our number for future reference. In some emergency situations, minutes may count.
- We welcome any questions concerning your pet’s health. Our experienced staff is available to help you
