During Normal Clinic Hours
Please call the clinic before bringing your cat in, if possible. This enables us to give you instructions on what to do before coming in, and provides us with time to prepare for your arrival.
Some of the most common emergencies we see:
Respiratory - signs may include open mouth breathing, increased breathing rate, shallow breaths, pale or grey gums.
Urinary - if your cat has been unable to urinate for the past 24 hours, is dribbling or vocalizing while attempting to use the litterbox. Urinary blockages can results in kidney failure and death.
Cardiac - arrythmias, congestive heart failure, thromboembolic disease are some of the issues we see.
Gastrointestinal - chronic vomiting and diarrhea can lead to dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. They could also be hiding such issues like pancreatitis, irritable bowel, or even types of cancer. Cats who aren’t eating also are at great risk of fatty liver disease.
