How do you know when your pet is experiencing a medical emergency? Obvious trauma cases would include animals being hit by a car, bleeding profusely from an injury or accident, or being bitten by a poisonous snake. Other situations may be life-threatening but not as obvious. If your animal is consistently not eating, vomiting or showing signs of gastrointestinal distress, you may have an emergency on your hands. Dr. Bobbi Conner talks about what constitutes a pet medical emergency and shares some of the common situations seen at the UF Small Animal Hospital and how to avoid these problems with your pet.
