What does an emergency veterinarian service do? What is an emergency veterinarian? Can I take my pet to a vet that isn’t mine? We will aim to answer a few of these questions today. Sometimes we find something isn’t right with our animal and when we try to reach our vet in WNY, they are too busy or just not available. Who do you turn to? There are obvious examples of a pet emergency, and there are subtle signs. Regular visits to your vet should help keep a proactive outlook on your pet’s safety, but unfortunately, things do happen. Animals often find themselves in curious positions that can end up in an emergency, but it isn’t always so obvious. 

Here are a few more subtle signs that you may have a pet emergency, even if you didn’t notice anything or witness anything occur. 

Pet Not Drinking Water

If your pet is refusing to drink water or hasn’t drunk any water for more than 24 hours, this could be a sign of trouble. 

Changes in Stool / Diarrhea / Vomiting

You can learn a lot about your pet’s health by looking at, (we know) their poop. Understanding that this isn’t something everyone WANTS to do, noticing a change in stool or diarrhea can be a sign to call the emergency veterinarian. Vomiting is also a sign something significant could be going on, and it may be worth a call.

Had a New Human Food (a No No!)

Pet owners tend to want to treat their furry friends with a delicious bite (or plate) of whatever delicacy they are enjoying. The issue is that many foods can be dangerous for animals. Ingestion of chocolate is very dangerous as many know, but foods with artificial sweeteners can also be very dangerous. If you noticed a child or someone fed human food to your pet that you normally wouldn’t,  give us a call for more information if you are concerned.

These are just a few subtle examples of when you may need to call a veterinary hospital. We are an experienced team of emergency vets that are 100% dedicated to pet emergencies, so if you ever have a question about your animal, please don’t hesitate to call our emergency line!
