Pet Emergency and Urgent Care in Houston, TX
Just like people, pets can experience accidents and injuries that require emergency care. However, sometimes it may be difficult to determine if your pet is experiencing a trauma that warrants a visit to urgent care or if their symptoms are those of something less serious. If you are unsure whether your pet is in need of veterinary trauma services at Creature Comfort Animal Hospital, here are the most common reasons to seek emergency care for pets.
Poisons like rat bait and snail bait definitely can be fatal. If you ever see your animal eating any snail bait or rat bait, you need to take him to your vet immediately. Animals that have ingested a toxin are common pet emergencies. If your pet is poisoned, prompt action is necessary, but take a few seconds to safely collect and have at hand any material involved. Your veterinarian may find this to be of great benefit to determine quickly what toxins are involved.
Foreign Body Injestion
There are many types of trauma that your pet can experience. If your pet has experienced any type of strike or blow, such as being hit by a car that causes injury or damage to any part of their body, they should be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible. If you aren’t sure how to transport your pet to the animal hospital following trauma or if you have questions about what to do during transportation, such as covering a wound or bracing a broken bone, contact your veterinarian for recommendations while you are in route or just prior to going to the emergency room.
If you notice your pet acting differently or exhibiting strange behaviors, such as withdrawing from you or suddenly fatigued, it is important you take them for an examination as soon as possible. Many injuries and illnesses will not show symptoms right away, such as if your pet has eaten something toxic, so the safest thing to do is take them in for an exam at the first sign of anything different in their behavior.
