What is Considered a Pet Emergency?

A pet emergency is any situation that requires immediate medical attention for your pet. This can include accidents, injuries, sudden illness, or any other life-threatening situation. Some common examples of pet emergencies include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Severe bleeding
  • Ingestion of toxic substances
  • Seizures
  • Unconsciousness
  • Difficulty urinating or defecating
  • Injuries from a car accident or fall
  • Difficulty giving birth
  • Severe vomiting or diarrhea
  • Inability to walk or stand

If you notice any of these symptoms or any other concerning behavior in your pet, it's important to seek emergency pet care immediately.

Poison Control

If you think your pet may have ingested a potentially poisonous substance, please call the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC)* at 888-426-4435 right away. The APCC is your best resource for any animal poison-related emergency and are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
