Roseville Emergency Animal Hospital Open 24 Hours
If your pet has accidentally ingested something toxic or been hit by a car, bring him to our Roseville pet emergency hospital immediately for treatment. Be aware that severely injured animals often behave aggressively towards anyone approaching them, even their human parents. When preparing to transport your pet, approach him calmly and slowly, saying his name in a quiet voice. Put him on a makeshift stretcher (a pet bed will do in an emergency) and carry him gently to your car. If your cat is injured, put a towel over his head to avoid being bitten before placing her in a pet carrier.
Advice for Dealing with a Pet Emergency in Roseville
If your pet seems more tired than usual or doesn’t seem interested in food, you may be able to wait 24 hours before bringing him to our emergency animal hospital in Roseville. However, if lack of appetite and lethargy are accompanied by one or more of the following symptoms, your pet should be seen by an emergency veterinarian as soon as possible:
- Labored or rapid breathing
- Excessive drooling and/or foaming at the mouth
- Bloated abdomen
- Constant coughing that prevents them from resting
- Restlessness, nervousness, whining (indicates your pet may be in pain)
- Pale or yellowish gums (may indicate internal bleeding or liver disease)
- Vomiting more than twice in a 12 hour period
- Foul odor coming from your pet (usually indicates wound infection)
Possible symptoms of pet poisoning in Roseville include heavy drooling, staggering when trying to walk, elevated heart rate, bleeding gums and/or blood coming from their nose and repetitive vomiting/retching.
