Your pets are an important part of your family and they depend on you for food, shelter, love and medical attention, if required.
However unfortunately, if there is something wrong they just can’t tell you about it, and their survival instincts are to hide any symptoms that show weakness or illness.
So if you’re worried your pet is not feeling 100% or if you think they’re acting strangely, how do you know when it is an actual emergency?
And how can you tell whether your pet needs to go to the vet or not?
There are certain symptoms or situations that are definite emergencies, indicating
your pet need to see a vet as soon as possible.
If your pet has any of these symptoms and you can’t get your pet to a vet, a mobile vet can come to you.
While you will need to consult your vet about the following symptoms, they usually do not necessitate an emergency 24 hour vet hospital consultation.
If you’re in any way concerned about your pet, you should never feel embarrassed about calling a vet.
You know your pet better than anyone else and you know if they’re behaving strangely or really not themselves.
Often we can often tell you over the phone whether you need to see a vet or not, simply by asking you some simple questions.
Even if you find out nothing’s wrong with your pet, it’s always better to be safe than sorry and you’ll be relieved to have your mind put at ease.
At Vetaround we’re open 7.30am -7pm weekdays and we come to your home. If you need emergency assistance outside of these hours, you can find details of local 24 hour emergency access hospitals here
