Trauma or impact injuries – Some injuries aren’t visible to the naked eye. If your pet has taken a fall, was hit by a car, or had some other impact, it’s important to get them to us for an evaluation right away.
Bite wounds – Whether your pet was playing too roughly with another pet at the dog park, or if they have encountered a wild animal in your backyard, bite wounds can be more serious than they appear. In addition to bleeding, there could be damage under the surface or the beginnings of an infection if not treated quickly.
Difficulty or labored breathing – If you notice that your pet is breathing quickly, wheezing, or if they appear to be breathing too hard, it can be a sign of injury or infection. Because your pet needs oxygen to power their body, respiratory issues should be taken seriously.
Uncontrollable vomiting – There are many reasons your pet might be vomiting repeatedly, from ingesting a toxic substance or due to obstruction by a foreign body. Regardless, excessive vomiting can lead to dehydration and other complications, which should be taken care of by one of our veterinary professionals.
Toxin exposure – From human foods to pest control measures, pets can get into a lot of things that are harmful to their bodies. If you notice your pet has eaten something they shouldn’t have, or if they are exhibiting other symptoms, such as vomiting, bring your pet into Emergency Pet Care of Texas to ensure they are properly taken care of.
The above list is not exhaustive. If your pet is bleeding, seizing, or having a difficult labor and delivery, our Magnolia veterinarians are ready to help. Don’t wait – call us today.
