Marine View Veterinary Hospital

How can I tell if my pet needs veterinary attention?

Call us immediately if your pet:

  • Has difficulty breathing
  • Loses consciousness
  • Becomes paralysed
  • Makes frequent and non-productive attempts to urinate
  • Suffers severe head or face trauma
  • Screams in pain
  • Experiences a seizure lasting longer than two minutes
  • Loses a significant quantity of blood (greater than one cup for small to medium pets; greater than two cups for large pets)
  • Fractures a bone
  • Shows significant abdominal distension, distress, agitation, or attempts to vomit

We recommend scheduling an appointment soon if your pet:

  • Vomits frequently for 12 hours or more
  • Has diarrhea lasting 24 hours or longer
  • Shows a lack of appetite for more than 48 hours, even without other symptoms
  • Is lame for more than 72 hours
  • Cannot stand
  • Blinks frequently or holds one or both eyes closed (should be seen within twenty-four hours)

Remember–you are most familiar with your pet's behavior. If something doesn't seem right, give us a call.
