Just like humans, pets can have a severe health problem that warrants getting them emergency services immediately. These pet services are there for when your pet needs to be seen right away for a serious problem. There are several health problems and injuries that may mean your pet needs emergency veterinary care. When you need these pet services, contact Kindred Care Pet Hospital in Richmond to speak with our veterinarian.
Many serious illnesses can infect your pet and make it extremely sick. These illnesses can be dangerous on the life of your pet. If your pet seems very sick, assess their health and see whether they are having a medical emergency. If they have pale or blue gums, they could be so sick that they aren't taking in enough oxygen.
Having heavy, labored breathing is another sign of a pet emergency. Having diarrhea for a long time or having it with blood in it can mean a medical emergency. This can cause your pet to become dehydrated and dehydration can kill pets. If your pet has both vomiting and diarrhea, they need pet services right away.
Pets may get a scrape or scratch now and again, but this is very different from a serious injury. When your pet is injured, monitor them to see how your pet is acting. If there is a lot of blood, press a towel to the wound and press firmly to try to stop it from bleeding. If you can't stop the bleeding, your pet needs to be seen for a pet emergency. If you see anything in the wound such as tendons or bone, the wound is too deep and will likely need stitches right away.
