|CritterCare Emergency Services
The idea of something that constitutes an emergency is different for each
pet owner. This could be range from a broken toe nail for one person to
another family whose companion is frantically seizuring. What is NOT okay
is thinking you have a possible emergency crisis and NOT contacting a skill
emergency veterinarian to either confirm or alleviate your concerns.
Example of situations that are frequently experienced by pet owners that
constitute veterinary medical emergencies include but are not limited to
- "Hit-by-Car" Traumas
- Porcupine Quill Patients
- Eye Traumas
- Heat Stroke
- Uncontrollable Hemorrhaging
- Repetitive Vomiting
- Respiratory Distress
- Uncontrollable Pain
- Self-mutilation Skin Problems
- Urinary Blockage or Discomfort
- Stomach Bloating/Torsions
- Fractured Bones
- Protracted Birthing of Fetuses
