When it’s Time to Act

  • Trouble urinating
  • Loss of balance
  • Unconsciousness
  • Gagging or difficulty breathing
  • Excessive vomiting or diarrhea
  • A fever of 104 or greater
  • Ingestion of known poisons

If you’re unsure, your pet is behaving unusually, or something doesn’t feel right, it’s best to contact us immediately. Call us right away for more information about when emergency care is needed and instructions for safely transporting your pet.
