It's a Saturday afternoon and your male cat keeps going back and forth to his litterbox trying to urinate. It's 8PM on a Tuesday and your dog looks like they've swallowed a basketball and is pacing uncomfortably. It's Sunday morning and you dog seems fine but has bloody diarrhea. Which of these situations require an immediate trip to the emergency veterinary clinic and which can wait until morning or after the weekend is over? Don and Kate talk with the Veazie Veterinary Clinic's Dr. Dave Cloutier about how to know when you have a real life or death emergency and what to do. We discuss obstruction of the urethra in male cats, canine gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) or bloat, shock as well as what to do when your pet has consumed something that may be toxic. We examine why a call to the emergency veterinary clinic or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center ((888) 426-4435) is a better strategy then searching online with Google. Some of the more common toxic substances consumed by pets will also be discussed. Tune in, what you learn just may save your pet's life.
