PET EMERGENCY AND URGENT VETERINARY CARE

No one expects an emergency, but they happen. When they do, the experienced veterinary staff at Animal Hospital at the Crossing is here to meet your animal's medical needs.

Is it an emergency?

Thankfully, most of your pet’s medical issues will not be emergencies and we can treat your pet during normal business hours. However, your pet may suffer an emergency after normal hours. You need to be able to recognize the symptoms and call us immediately.

Signs of some common pet emergencies are:

Exotic Pets: Birds, Ferrets, Rabbits, Reptiles and Amphibians

It’s important to understand that exotic pets don’t show signs of illness as readily as other pets – their signs may be even more subtle but no less dangerous so please use the top ten list above and exotic list below as guidelines of what to watch for in your exotic pet.

BIRDS
Staying on the bottom of the cage, not perching, fluffed up while perched, sleeping a lot, not talking (if normally does), loose droppings, decreased number of droppings, not eating.

FERRETS
Diarrhea, vomiting, pawing at the mouth (may indicate nausea due to dangerously low blood sugar), frequent trips to the litter box with little or no urine production, pain in the abdomen, depression, lack of appetite.

RABBITS, SMALL MAMMALS
Diarrhea or decreased numbers of stools, lack of appetite, weak or depressed, painful when lifted or touched, head tilted to one side, rolling, flipping.

REPTILES
Weak or unresponsive, open-mouth breathing, prolonged lack of appetite, frantic movements or thrashing.

Some emergencies are not as easily recognized but may be just as life-threatening to your pet. Clinical symptoms may develop slowly with some illnesses or injuries, and it is often difficult to recognize them or judge their severity. This is not an all-inclusive list of emergencies. Please call us as soon as possible if your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms:
