Quick guide to some common emergencies

If your pet is:

Bleeding

Clean the dirty wound with warm salt water and apply a clean cloth with pressure over the wound.

Seizuring (having a fit)

Make the room as dark and as quiet as possible. Position your pet out of the way of anything that could cause injury. Remember to avoid touching your pet around its mouth as it may bite you. Make a note of the length of time the seizure lasts. Keep your pet as cool as possible as they can overheat during a seizure. Call the surgery.

Overheating

Cool with tepid water and offer water to drink then call the surgery for advice.

If your pet has:

Been hit by a car

keep them warm, wrap in a blanket, keeping the nose and mouth exposed. If you think there may be broken bones, keep them as still as possible and place them on a hard moveable surface and transport them to the nearest vet.
