By nature, puppies and kittens are curious and playful. Their spirit and energy makes puppies and kittens wonderful to own but can also lead them to danger. Injuries, ingestion of toxic substances and other problems can all lead to medical emergencies for young animals. It is always important to focus on pet owner education. Knowing the potential emergencies that can affect kittens and puppies can help your pet avoid a medical emergency.
If your pet experiences a medical emergency, it’s important to be able to recognize the signs of illness or medical distress. Watch your pet for changes in behavior like lethargy, disinterest in eating, blood in the stool, difficulty urinating or defecating, fever, confusion and lack of coordination.
If your pet experiences one of these problems, acting quickly could save your puppy or kitten’s life. Keep the phone number for an emergency veterinarian plugged into your phone. Post information for an emergency vet on your fridge to make it easy to contact the vet right away.
