Puppy Emergency Care

The following are signs that your puppy or dog needs immediate care:

  • Any respiratory problem:  coughing, gasping or any kind of trouble breathing
  • Any signs of pain:  such as: excessive panting, labored breathing, straining to urinate or defecate, fever, sudden lethargy, prolonged restlessness, unexplained whining, favoring a leg
  • Persistent or continuous vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • Any wound or laceration that´s open and bleeding or any animal bite or puncture wound
  • Allergic reactions, such as swelling around the face or hives (most easily seen on the belly)
  • Any eye injury, no matter how mild (often seen as wincing)
  • Any suspected poisoning, including ingestion of antifreeze, rodent or snail bait, or human medication
  • Seizures, fainting, or collapse
  • Thermal stress, either too cold or too hot, even if the dog seems to have recovered
  • Trauma, such as being hit by a car, even if the dog seems fine

Since pets don’t always tell you about a problem until it has become serious, please call us immediately if your puppy or dog is exhibiting any of these symptoms.
