IN CASE OF EMERGENCY

If you need to go to the  emergency room:

Bring your foster directly to the e-vet. Do not wait until you hear from us. If it is a true emergency do not call ahead to the vet. Just show up. Emergency facilities are legally required to take steps to stabilize a patient if it is there, but if are at capacity, they will try to send you elsewhere. Give the vet our phone numbers and we will authorize care, arrange payment, and make treatment decisions.

Reasons to go to an emergency vet:

  • Not breathing/labored breathing/choking

  • Not responsive

  • Seizure

  • Difficulty walking/standing

  • Uncontrolled bleeding

  • Extreme lethargy

  • (Male cats) Straining in the litter box w/ no urine production

  • Toxic object ingestion

  • Trauma/injury (broken bones)

  • Severe/acute pain

  • Persistent vomit/diarrhea

  • Animal bite

  • Hard, distended, painful abdomen

  • Complete and persistent inappetence

  • Neurological symptoms (extreme head tilt, mobility issues, tremors)

  • Eye injury

  • White gums/tongue
