As the responsibility of owning a pet, we want to provide pets with the highest quality healthcare to our loved once. Like people, pets can also have medical emergencies from time to time. It’s crucial to know the signs of a pet emergency and some of the common causes. For the benefit of all of our patients and their owners, we have put together some helpful material to help everyone understand some of the most common pet emergencies that we see. Trust the team at Waldorf Emergency Care for all pet services, particularly those involving emergency and trauma services. Our veterinary team is here to help all pet owners with their healthcare needs.
Vomiting: Vomiting is the most common emergency that comes through our door. Sometimes, the pet has developed a stomach bug that has led to profusely vomiting. In other cases, the pet might have ingested something that he or she shouldn’t have. This foreign object will also lead to vomiting.
Broken Bones: Pets are also prone to suffering injuries. Some pets might step in a hole. Other pets might get attacked by a large animal. This can lead to bone fractures that need x-rays, a cast, and, occasionally, surgical correction.
Seizures: We also see pets that come in suffering from seizures. A seizure develops when the neurons in the brain start to fire uncontrollably. This might be due to an electrolyte imbalance, head trauma, or even a tumor. We will work hard to find the cause of the seizures and stop them from happening.
