When is your pet’s health condition an emergency?

February 1, 2021

Pet owners know their pets and notice small changes in them pretty quickly but it can be difficult to know when a symptom is in need of urgent treatment. During lockdown, staying home and limiting travel and contact are the messages we are receiving which makes it even more difficult to decide if your pet needs veterinary help urgently.

During the current restrictions we are not undertaking routine procedures such as neutering, vaccination boosters and some dental work.  However, to help you we will share a series of posts about some of the more serious conditions that can affect pets so you’ll know when to take action.  We will share information about the signs and symptoms of medical issues that would need urgent veterinary treatment.  In all instances, if you are at any time concerned about the health of your pet, do call the team for advice.  They will ask the right questions to understand your needs and the needs of your pet so they can advise as to the right course of action.
