As a pet owner, there are different types of symptoms that you may encounter that can imply that your pet needs urgent care.

There are subtle symptoms and obvious symptoms that you will be able to identify easily based on the situation. Here’s a breakdown:

1. Subtle Symptoms

These symptoms may not be very visible to a pet owner’s eye. However, they can have a severe impact on your pet’s well-being. These especially, need urgent care because it’s hard to know the real cause. They include:

  • Lack of Appetite: Sometimes your pet may turn their noses at their food. Normally this will not be a cause of concern, but if it’s recurrent, then you need to see a vet immediately.
  • Urinating/Stool Problems: Has your pet been having issues urinating or passing stool for more than 24 hours already?
  • This could be one of the subtle symptoms that your pet needs urgent care. This can cause severe pain or worse could be life-threatening to our pets.

    Make sure to monitor your pet’s urinary and stool discharge habits.

  • Limping, Panting, Drooling and Whimpering: Our pets tend to mask their pain, so it would be hard to tell. But if you notice these symptoms and behaviours, it could only mean that they are in severe pain and would need urgent care.
  • Face Swelling: If you notice your pet’s face swelling uncontrollably, make sure you get it managed right away.
  • Face swelling may be caused by an allergic reaction. It could also be something else that is life-threatening hence urgent care is needed.

    2. Other Obvious Symptoms

    These symptoms are easily detected and visible to the pet owner’s eye.

  • Choking: This is one of the most common obvious symptoms that our pet can experience.
  • Pets do not always make a sound when choking, which means you can’t immediately see it. However, there are signs you can look out for, including:

    • Gagging
    • Panting rapidly
    • Pawing at their mouth
    • Pacing restlessly.

    Once you notice these behaviours be sure to act quickly.

  • Trauma: This could be caused by collision, attack or fall. These instances can cause external or internal injuries that would require urgent care. If your pet ever experiences this, our vet services in Clayton South will surely save your pet’s life.
  • Excessive Vomiting and Diarrhea: If not frequent usually this will not be a sign of a problem. However, if your pet experiences this continuously then it can indicate something serious.
  • It could be caused by a viral infection or food poisoning, both of which can lead to life-threatening problems.

  • Loss of Consciousness: If this happens, ensure to seek urgent care right away! Loss of consciousness could be a signs of many complications like:
    • Poisoning
    • Severe allergic reaction
    • Internal bleeding
    • Heatstroke.
  • Hemorrhaging: Another obvious symptom that requires urgent care is heavy bleeding. Ignoring severe bleeding in your pet might have fatal consequences for their health.

    So far out of all the vets I've been to this one is the best. It's really a shame I've moved far. You can tell that Mary and Chris genuinely care for your pets and that they actually like animals. Not to name and shame but many I've been to don't even try to make your pet comfortable. The receptionists here are also really nice. Consultation fee is fairly priced. Thanks, Mika 😊

    My dog Licorice met the Vet Nicole for the first time. It was an amazing experience. Nicole was extremely patient and friendly with Licorice. She answered all my questions. I'd surely request that she's the one we see again. Thank you Nicole.
