When should you see an emergency vet?

You should seek veterinary care in the event of any acute illness or injury. If the animal has been in bad shape for a long time, but has suddenly become worse, you should also contact the emergency vet. Unfortunately, all pets can be exposed to diseases and injuries from time to time. Some of these can be both painful and life-threatening, and there may be a need for emergency veterinary care. Getting treatment as quickly as possible saves the animal unnecessary pain and can also save lives.

Conditions that require emergency veterinary care

At A-Vet, we see various examples of conditions that require urgent veterinary care. In the event of, among other things, abdominal rotation, inflammation of the uterus, acute vomiting and diarrhoea, collision or birth problems, there may be a need for immediate treatment.

In addition, there are a number of other conditions that can be acute, and it is therefore important that you as the owner are always aware of your pet's behaviour. Do you have a pet that seems lethargic, just wants to lie down, shows signs of fever, refuses to eat or drink, has changed drinking or urination patterns, experiences problems with urination or defecation, or shows other symptoms of illness? Do not hesitate, contact the nearest vet immediately.
