Pet Urgent/Emergency Care

As with people, pets may have an emergency health situation or trauma, which means they need to see a veterinary professional to help them. Emergency services are needed when the health problem is severe, or there is a serious injury. Getting emergency care is important in serious situations, as the pet may need immediate veterinary care. When you need these services, call Oakland Park Animal Hospital in Oakland Park, FL. The emergency care your pet gets may just save its life.  

Pet Injuries

Severe Illnesses

There are a number of severe illnesses that your pet can come down with. These pose a serious danger to your pet. If it looks like your pet is experiencing a medical emergency, you need to do an assessment of your health. Look at your pet's gums. If they look very pale, this can be a sign that they aren't getting enough oxygen. If their breathing is heavy and difficult, they may need emergency care.

If a pet has diarrhea that continues for a long time, or there's blood in it, this can be a serious situation. Dehydration can be fatal. When a pet has diarrhea and is also vomiting, they need to get urgent veterinary services. 

Pet Injuries

Getting the occasional cut or scratch is normal, but serious injuries are not. If there is a severe injury, you need to watch them closely. When they are bleeding a lot, take a clean towel and press it to the wound to stop as much bleeding as you can. If it doesn't stop, it's time for urgent care for your pet.

If the wound is very deep, and you can see bones or tendons, they will need stitches. Lethargy after suffering from a wound can also signify an emergency. It may mean that there's been too much loss of blood. If you are unable to wake your pet, the situation is serious, and emergency care is needed.

  • "AWESOME, Dr. Spencer Ratnoff is the best he treated my cat for a fractured top k9 tooth, when He finished with him, he looked like he was born without a k9 tooth. He did that surgery so well it’s refreshing a Dr that actually cares, his team is wonderful and very attentive, I left a message and not even 10 minutes later, I got a call back. My family is forever grateful .thank you for everything."

  • "I initially had a bad experience due to the Doctor that was in on that day. I returned for a checkup for my girl 'Cali' 'Cat' and the energy Dr. Ratnoff had was much better with my girl as she can be very temperamental. I was very pleased during this visit as Dr. Ratnoff had more patience and better vibe as our pets sense negative energy. Its a shame my first experience was not pleasant but I will be back and only ensure Dr. Ratnoff with my girl. Thankyou Doc!"
