When to Seek Emergency Medical Care

Some of the signs that your pet may require urgent medical attention include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Ingestion of a foreign object or toxic substance
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts, lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Vomiting or diarrhea lasting longer than 24 hours
  • Bleeding
  • Trauma, such as a fall or being hit by a car
  • Swollen or tender abdomen
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Lameness
  • Disorientation
  • Foaming at the mouth
  • Convulsions/seizures
  • Loss of consciousness

Should your pet exhibit any of these signs or symptoms, it’s imperative that you seek help right away. We recommend calling our Naperville / Bolingbrook hospital in advance prior to bringing your pet in for treatment. This allows us to assess the situation, provide guidance over the phone and, if necessary, prepare for your companion’s arrival. Of course, if the nature of your pet’s emergency does not allow time for a phone call, do not hesitate to come directly to the clinic for immediate attention.

At Animal Health Care, we sincerely hope you never face the need for urgent veterinary care. In the event that you do, however, we want you to know that you can count on us.
