After-Hours Emergency Vet

Because we are not a 24-hour hospital, we need to refer patients to Veterinary Emergency Clinic in Casselberry for after-hours care. This way, you won’t have to worry about your pet’s safety and well-being should they become sick or injured during the night or early in the morning.

How to Tell If Your Pet is Having an Emergency

Sometimes it’s easy to tell when a pet is having an emergency, but sometimes it isn’t. Below are some common signs (both subtle and not-so-subtle) of an emergency you should look out for:

  • Gasping/panting
  • Coughing continuously
  • Refusing food and water for over 24 hours
  • Lethargic, sleeping more than normal
  • Walking/moving very gingerly
  • Whimpers or cries out in pain when touched
  • No urination or bowel movement for 24 hours
  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea for 24+ hours
  • Gagging, smacking lips, or pawing at the neck (could be a sign of choking)
  • Foaming at the mouth
  • Large quantity of blood in stool, vomit, or urine
  • Acting confused and disoriented
  • Ingested pills or some other toxic substance
