How to know if your pet needs urgent veterinary care.

If you are unsure whether your pet requires veterinary trauma services in Long Island City, NY, here are the most common reasons to seek emergency care for pets.

Breathing Problems

Watching your pet struggle to breathe can be terrifying for both you and your pet. If your pet has difficulty breathing, it means something is going on, and it definitely can be classified as an emergency. Breathing problems can be caused by a wide range of things, such as heart failure, an allergic reaction, a blockage in the lung, and a variety of other serious problems. In this situation, you should seek emergency pet services immediately.

Seizures

If your pet has had seizures in the past or if they have just had their first seizure, you need to take them to an animal hospital for emergency veterinary services as quickly as you can. Seizures occur as a result of abnormal electrical activity in their brain. Seizures can sometimes be isolated, whereas other times, they occur in groups. Still, either way, several things may cause your pet to have seizures, so you must seek medical attention for them as soon as possible.

Trauma
There are many types of trauma that your pet can experience. If your pet has experienced any strike or blow, such as being hit by a car that causes injury or damage to any part of their body, they should be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible. If you aren’t sure how to transport your pet to the animal hospital following trauma or if you have questions about what to do during transportation, such as covering a wound or bracing a broken bone, contact your veterinarian for recommendations while you are in route or just before going to the emergency room.
Foreign Body

Pets eat the weirdest things. Unfortunately, often these things may cause obstructions (blockages) in the intestinal tract. When this occurs, it is life-threatening, and emergency care should be sought right away. Common symptoms include (but are not limited to): acute vomiting, straining to defecate, lethargy, and loss of appetite.

Urinary Issues
Bladder stones, kidney stones, internal lesions, and other urinary tract obstacles may cause dangerous urinary blockages, causing toxins to build up in the blood. Catheterization to remove the blockage, combined with fluids to dilute the toxins, can save your pet’s life.
