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.

Subtle Symptoms

These symptoms may not be very visible to a pet owner’s eye but can be severely impacting to our pet’s well-being and urgent care should be provided immediately.

  • Lack of Appetite: There are times that our furry friends may turn their noses at their food. Normally this will not be a cause of concern however if your furry friend still does not eat for more than 24 hours this can be a problem. Make sure to attend to this urgent matter as soon as possible to prevent other complications that may be life threatening to your pet.
  • Urinating/Stool Problems: Have 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 and if these symptoms and behaviours are noticed it could only mean that they are in severe pain and would need urgent care.
  • Face Swelling: We as pet owners may not easily identify if our pet’s face is swelling or growing twice its normal size and if we are able to identify this should be managed right away. Face swelling on our furry friend’s face may be caused by allergic reaction or could be something else that are life threatening hence urgent care is needed.

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 may experience. Our furry friends are curious creatures that likes smelling and putting stuff in their mouth. Our pets do not always make a sound when choking, you can identify that your pet is choking if you noticed these behaviours; gagging, panting rapidly, pawing at their mouth and pacing restlessly. Once you notice these behaviours be sure to act quickly.
  • Trauma: Could be caused by collision, attack or fall. These instances can cause external or internal injuries that would require urgent care which can be provided by your vet in Clayton South.
  • Excessive Vomiting and Diarrhea: If not frequent usually this will not be a sign of problem but if your pet experiences this continuously then it can indicate something serious. Could be caused by a viral infection or food poison and can lead to life threatening problems.
  • Loss of Consciousness: If this happens, ensure to seek urgent care right away! Loss of consciousness could be signs of many complications like poisoning, severe allergic reaction, internal bleeding, or heatstroke.
  • Hemorrhaging: Another obvious symptoms that require urgent care is heavy bleeding and you’ll need to contact your vet right away. It can be very fatal to your pets wellbeing when heavy bleeding is ignored.

The availability of an emergency vet service in an area is vital. It provides immediate access to critical care, saves lives, minimizes suffering, and ensures that our beloved pets receive the necessary medical attention when time is of the essence. It is an indispensable resource that brings comfort and security to pet owners, fostering a healthier and safer environment for our cherished animal companions.

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.
