Take Control of Your Pet’s Health With Emergency Care Services

December 28, 2021

Pet emergencies occur when you least expect them. It could be at night, during weekends, or while on vacation.

Unfortunately, when such situations occur, most pet owners become panicky, delaying urgent treatment for their pets. Time is of the essence during an emergency and is usually the difference between saving your pet and expecting the worst. Luckily, in Costa Mesa, CA, you can always count on All Creatures Care Cottage whenever you need urgent care for your pet.

What Counts As a Pet Emergency?

There are many causes of pet emergencies. Regrettably, since our furry friends can't communicate verbally like humans, it can be challenging to establish when they need urgent care. However, there are specific cues and signs you can watch out for to establish that your pet requires immediate attention. Call your vet immediately if you spot your pet showing signs of:

  • Poisoning
  • Trauma
  • Bleeding that doesn't stop after five minutes
  • Seizures
  • Heatstroke
  • Eye injury
  • Choking or difficulty breathing
  • Acute stomach upset or vomiting
  • Unconsciousness
  • Reluctance to drink water for over 24 hours

In case of an emergency, don't take chances by following a "wait-and-see" approach - call our clinic for assistance right away. Emergency care starts immediately after you contact our veterinary team, who can guide you on how to administer first aid and safely transport your pet to our clinic for urgent treatment.
