Recognizing Pet Emergencies

Signs of a Pet Emergency

  • Visible injuries, like wounds or fractures
  • Signs of poisoning from consuming toxic substances

Handling a Pet Emergency

In handling a pet emergency, we know how crucial it is to act quickly and efficiently. We first ensure safety for both pet parents and the animal by calmly securing them, then assessing their condition to understand the urgency of the care needed.

Our team at Mercy Pet Hospital Fair Oaks is trained to provide immediate assistance over the phone, guiding you on what actions to take next. If your pet requires urgent care, bringing them promptly to our hospital can make all the difference in their health outcome.

Transporting a Pet to the Hospital

Always ensure your dog or cat is safely contained in a carrier or securely fastened with a leash and harness if they are too large for a carrier.

This prevents them from moving freely in the car, which could potentially worsen their condition or cause distraction to the driver. Keep calm and drive carefully; your composed demeanor can have a soothing effect on your pet, making the trip less stressful for both of you.
