Handling Common Pet Emergencies in Studio City

dog-with-stelescope

If your pet is in a life-threatening situation, it is critical that you stay calm and act quickly. Call your pet's regular vet immediately if you need help during daytime hours. But if it is after-hours or on weekends or holidays, call us at the Animal Emergency Centre in Studio City at (818) 760-3882. In the meantime, please read through the following emergency situations and learn the actions to take—as well as preventative measures to avoid emergencies in the first place.

Studio City Pet Emergency? Call (818) 760-3882 Immediately!

We recommend doing all you can to prevent pet emergencies before they happen. These are just a few tips that everyone with a pet should know and follow:

•    Prevent pet poisonings by keeping human foods, all medications, automotive fluids, poisonous plants, and other poisons out of reach. Make sure trash can lids and cabinets are secured.

•    Keep pets leashed or in a fenced yard that is not easy to escape.

•    Never leave your pet alone in the car, especially on warm days!

•    Keep your pet cool, out of the sun and well hydrated on hot days.

•    Get your pet spayed or neutered.

•    Keep your pet current on vaccinations and double check your pet's shot records regularly.
Even with the best precautions, pet emergencies still happen. The following symptoms require immediate veterinary attention:

•    Unconscious or unresponsive - Check your pet’s pulse and breathing. Start pet CPR if neither is happening (call us at (818) 760-3882 for help). If your pet is overly hot, use cool, wet towels to lower the temperature and contact your emergency vet immediately.

•    Bleeding - Use sterile gauze or clean towels to apply firm pressure to the wound. Be careful around broken bones and come into the emergency vet quickly.

•    Breathing Problems - Your pet could be having an allergic reaction or have something stuck in her throat. Gently pull out the tongue to check and carefully pull out any foreign items. Seek immediate help.

•    Seizures - Do not panic; clear the area around your pet of any sharp objects and make sure he is away from any stairs. Let the seizure pass while speaking calmly and quietly. Then come in to the emergency vet immediately thereafter.

•    Diarrhea or vomiting - These symptoms could indicate a serious illness or poisoning. If they include a bloated, tight stomach, a deadly intestinal blockage could be involved. This requires immediate pet surgery to remove the blockage.

During a pet emergency, it is important to stay calm. If you have a pet, read up on pet emergencies from time to time to refresh your knowledge and be prepared to administer pet first aid and know how to get to our emergency animal hospital fast if there is a problem. Our homepage features a map.

If your pet is showing any strange or alarming symptoms, or seems to be in a lot of pain, do not hesitate to call your vet during their regular hours, or call us overnight, on weekends and holidays. We are here to help!
