Does My Pet Need Emergency Care?

Veterinarians can help with a wide range of needs. We are equipped to handle urgent health issues in animals, and we can quickly diagnose and treat the problem. Many health emergencies are time-sensitive, meaning every moment matters. You need to get your pet to a professional as soon as possible to protect its health. 

You might wonder how to tell if your pet needs urgent care, or if a regular appointment would do. Emergency care is for health issues that are life-threatening and therefore need to be treated immediately. Your pet should see a veterinarian immediately if you notice the following signs: 

  • Trouble breathing, panting heavily or choking
  • Upset stomach for longer than 24 hours
  • Acts disoriented
  • Blood in vomit, stool or urine
  • Injuries to the eye
  • Swollen, hard abdomen
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • May have ingested something toxic
  • Possible broken bones
  • Cannot walk or stand

If you’ve noticed these symptoms, you need to act quickly. It’s always a good idea to get a problem checked out even if you aren’t certain how serious the issue actually is, since the sooner we begin administering treatment, the better chances that your pet will be alright. 

Our Veterinarians Are Ready to Assist You

Blue Lake Animal Hospital prides itself on delivering efficient service when you need it the most. We offer a range of world-class veterinary services that prepare us to handle your request:

  • Diagnostics. We use state-of-the-art veterinary imaging technology to perform an in-depth assessment. Diagnostics that we collect include blood work, urinalysis, imaging, microscopic inspections and electrocardiograms. The data from these tests reveal key information about the health issue your pet is facing and allow us to treat it accordingly.
  • Surgical Services. Certain health issues require surgical intervention to solve. Our veterinarians are highly experienced in many different surgeries, so you know your pet is in good hands. We use our extensive knowledge to carry out the highest standard of veterinary care. 
  • Reproductive Care. If your pet is giving birth, we can help ensure the process goes smoothly. Some animals may have trouble giving birth naturally, and one common example is the French bulldog. We perform C-section surgeries to keep both mother and pup safe during the delivery.
