How Do I Know My Pet is Having an Emergency?
Unfortunately, emergencies happen in all aspects of life, whether they are good or bad. We typically cannot predict all of them, but we can be prepared to recognize when our pets need an emergency and critical care visit to the vet.
Many symptoms cannot wait until morning—severe bleeding or bleeding that will not stop after 5 minutes; difficulty breathing or choking; inability to urinate or defecate or obvious pain associated with either; any eye injury; any toxin ingestion; seizing; sudden collapse and staggering; unable to move the back legs; and any apparent signs of severe pain such as crying, whimpering, heaving panting or howling.
Here at San Marco Animal Hospital, our veterinarians and staff have years of experience dealing with everything from simple to complex emergencies. Your pet was attacked by another animal, hit by a car, heatstroke, sudden collapse, breathing issues/respiratory distress, seizures, dystocia, pyometra, and so much more.
At San Marco Animal Hospital, we are open seven days a week to be here should you have an emergency with your pet. We know what it is like in a crisis, not knowing where to go, and on top of everything, realize you do not have the financial means to take your pet into an emergency room.
Not only do we have many years of experience, but we also have in-house diagnostic tools that allow us to get results now so we can treat your fur baby fast and correctly. We have tools such as an x-ray machine and blood work machines and our surgical suite and oxygen therapy cage. Not to mention, we also have a truly dedicated staff that you can trust will treat your fur baby like their own and keep them calm and comfortable with extraordinary care.
If you are ever experiencing an emergency with your pet and do not know who will be open that does not charge emergency room pricing, remember us at San Marco Animal Hospital. We are open seven days a week to be here for you and your fur baby when you need us. Call us at 904-516-9767 whichever is convenient for you.
