9 Pet Emergency Cases That Need Immediate Veterinary Care

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Pets, like humans, need professional healthcare, too. But unlike our loved ones, domesticated animals can’t talk to communicate about their exact problems. This is why it’s important to have professional vets in Calne and Chippenham on your phonebook. Their help especially comes in handy in times of an emergency.

Here are nine cases that need immediate veterinary care.

Allergic reactions. This is a common reason why pet owners seek immediate help from vets in Chippenham. If your pet experiences swelling around the face, hives, or under the belly — coupled with distress — it’s highly likely that it has been exposed to an allergy-triggering factor.

Difficulty in breathing. Severe allergic reactions can also lead to breathing problems. It can also be associated with underlying health issues such as asthma and heart disease. Always be alert if your pet wheezes, coughs, or exhibits weak and shallow breathing.

Vomiting. If something extremely upsets your pet’s stomach, it may experience vomiting and/or diarrhoea. If it lasts for more than 24 hours, you should take your pet to a trusted vet clinic. This emergency case is typically linked to lethargy or weakness.

Poisoning. Animals have different digestive capabilities from humans. If they eat chocolate, human medication, or grapes among others, it can cause pet poisoning. They will also suffer once they accidentally consume rat and slug poisons. Immediate help from vets in Calne is essential during this situation.

Seizures. If your pet has epilepsy, you should be watchful as seizures may suddenly occur. If your pet uncontrollably shakes for more than a couple of minutes, go to a vet ASAP. Even if your pet is not epileptic, seizures are still a possibility. These can also be coupled with a loss of bowel and paddling with the legs.

Collapse. There could be different reasons behind pets collapsing. These include heart and vascular diseases, anemia, lung diseases, toxicity, and internal or external bleeding. As these are life-threatening causes, professional veterinary attention is urgently needed.

Neurological issues. Is your pet suffering from disorientation or incoordination? Does it show extreme lethargy? Or do you suspect that it has already fallen in a coma? These are all signs of nerve or brain issues. And only experts will have the capacity to properly diagnose and treat such concerns.

Heatstroke. Animals also experience heatstroke. Its symptoms include vomiting, rapid panting, incoordination, and worse, collapse. Don’t attempt to immerse your pet in water — take it to a vet clinic instead. The same should be done if your pet has been exposed to extremely cold temperatures.

Trauma. From falls and road accidents to gunshot wounds or bites coming from another animal, there are different scenarios wherein a pet may experience trauma. Whichever the cause is, the important thing to accomplish to get help from a trusted vet in your area.
