When Is It a Veterinary Emergency?

- Staggering, fainting, seizures, and other neurological symptoms
- Poison ingestion
- Heat stroke or hypothermia
- Uncontrollable bleeding, vomiting, or diarrhea
- Fractures, burns, and deep lacerations
- Difficult labor or lengthy delivery between babies (dystocia)
- Abdominal swelling (a sign of bloat)
- Difficult or painful urination
- A swallowed foreign object
