Emergency treatment

Pets can be good friends, and discovering that your favorite pet is experiencing life-threatening symptoms is frightening. Excessive vomiting, difficulty breathing, and major fractures or lacerations are all potential emergencies that both big and small pets can experience. At Pine Castle Animal Care Center in Orlando, FL, we can see pets dealing with urgent health care needs and want you to know how we can provide them with emergency treatment that restores their health. 


What Is Considered Urgent Care Needs for Pets?

For many common pet care needs, you can wait a day or two to bring them to the clinic. Sometimes, watchful waiting can help to reveal why your pet might be turning their nose up at their food or acting more lethargic than normal. However, we might encourage you to contact a veterinarian on our veterinary team when your pet shows obvious signs of pain or difficulty breathing. Pets that have non-stop episodes of vomiting or diarrhea should also come to our urgent care center. Naturally, seeing any seriously unusual symptoms that don’t have a known cause may be a good reason to get your pet checked out by a vet.

What Should You Do Before You Visit the Veterinarian?

If your pet is having serious symptoms, then you’ll first need to get them stabilized. This might mean applying first aid practices, such as wrapping a bleeding wound with gauze or helping your pet stay safe until they finish having a seizure. Once the most serious symptoms are managed, you can then begin preparing your pet for transport to the vet. If you have the ability, then giving us a call to let us know you’re coming helps us to be prepared to help your pet when you walk through the doors. We might even be able to give you advice on stabilizing your pet as you prepare to seek treatment.

What Kinds of Pet Treatment Are Offered as Emergency Care?

Pet treatment often resembles similar types of care as you’d expect to see a doctor providing humans. Emergency surgery may be necessary. A vet on our team can help to identify what might be causing symptoms of an unknown health condition, so that you feel more confident moving forward with emergency treatment.
