Is This Really an Emergency?

When should you take your pet to an emergency care facility? Obviously, problems like trauma, seizures, severe vomiting or diarrhea need immediate attention. But what about minor problems? How do you know if you should take your pet to the hospital in the middle of the night or wait until your veterinarian opens? A good general guideline is IF IN DOUBT SEEK EMERGENCY VETERINARY CARE. Many serious conditions may appear as a minor problem. Your pet can’t always communicate how much pain he or she is in. So, if in doubt, seek emergency care.
