Emergency Pet Care


Emergencies can happen, but you shouldn’t have to worry about where to take your pet if they need immediate care. Our Orlando animal hospitals are equipped and staffed to provide prompt emergency care for your pet the moment they’re brought in the door. We understand that emergencies are always a possibility, which is why we’re prepared to make any pet with urgent health issues a priority.

Obvious and Not-So Obvious Emergency Situations

The signs that show a pet is having an emergency are not always obvious. Consider these symptoms/situations:

  • Shortness of breath/labored breathing
  • Coughing, wheezing, or gagging
  • Pale gums
  • Unusually high or low body temperature
  • Unable to walk or stand
  • Collapse
  • Bleeding heavily
  • Bleeding from the nose and ears
  • Yelps or cries when touched
  • Walking with a head tilt
  • Refusing to eat or drink (for more than 24 hours)
  • Vomiting/diarrhea (more than 24 hours)
  • Ingested a toxin or choking hazard
  • Is having trouble urinating/passing stool
  • Took a serious fall, got hit by a car, or got attacked by another animal

If you notice anything unusual about your pet, whether it’s their appearance, their behavior, or something else, don’t hesitate to contact one of our Orlando veterinarians for help. Even a seemingly harmless issue could be hiding something more serious.
