Your pet is apart of your family, and like your family members, it’s essential to know when to send your loved ones to the hospital in case of an emergency. Here are a few ways that will help you indicate signs of distress for your pet that may need animal doctors attention.
4 Pet Emergencies That Need An Animal Hospital Visit
1.Odd Eating Habits
It’s not unusual for your pet to skip a few meals, especially if the temperature is higher than usual. Although if your pets odd eating habits go on for weeks, then that’s when you know there’s something wrong with your pet. Two days without eating is a huge indication that there is something wrong with your animal.
Some diseases cause your pet to develop unusual eating habits. If your pet is usually well behaved but begins to show signs of off behaviour, then you should take your pet to a Calgary animal hospital.
2. Sluggish and Tired Behaviour
If your animal is usually energetic or active but begins showing signs of laziness and inactive behaviour, then that could mean your pet is dealing with something troubling. Typical symptoms of fatigue can be a result of high or low temperatures. It’s always good to be safe and take your pet to see your Calgary veterinarian.
Just like humans, occasional vomiting isn’t super unusual for your pet. Animals may vomit to get rid of something that doesn’t sit well in their system, although continuous vomiting may strike for concern. For example, if your animal is vomiting are frequently, vomits blood, or has a fever, then that is when you should call your local veterinary hospital. Vomiting could also be a sign of dehydration or diarrhea. Get to your Calgary vet as soon as possible so you can attempt to stop any fatal repercussions from happening.
4. Unusual Stool
Your pets stool is a good indication of their overall health. A healthy pet will have small, firm, moist stools. Dry, hard stools may be a sign of health issues, dietary problems, or dehydration. Take your pet to your local Calgary vet if they have any of these symptoms:
- Worms in stool
- Diarrhea for more than 24 hours
- Blood or mucus in the stool
