Being Observant Can Save Lives

Pet owners have to be responsible and pay attention to their pets and surroundings. Several events or circumstances can increase your pet chances of having an animal emergency. If your pet is experiencing signs of vomiting or diarrhea, it could mean that he or she has ingested something toxic or is having organ problems, which could be life-threatening. If your pet has diabetes, it is best to prioritize his or her safety by seeing our veterinarian for treatment. Difficult or painful urination may indicate signs of bladder stones or a system blockage. Seizures, heatstroke, dizziness, fainting, and excessive panting are signs that your animal needs to see an emergency veterinarian. These are potential health issues that can become dangerous when left untreated. 

If your female pet is pregnant, be very attentive to the mother. Unfortunately, we cannot always be in direct control of the situations an animal is placed in. Your female animal can experience a difficult labor, may hemorrhage, have metritis, or damage her puppies or kittens while delivering them. In cases like these, it is best to contact our veterinarian for advice or treatment.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "The staff is wonderful. We brought Otis, a very large 4 yr old Rottie there for an ACL/miniscus surgery. Everything was successful. We just brought him for his final follow up and all is good. This big guy has no manners and no sense of personal space except for his own space, but he loves the receptionists and vet techs there, and they love him. Nothing but good things to say about Watertown Veterinary Hospital."
