This question…When should my pet see a Veterinary?, is at least one that we have all asked either to our self, friends, or even Google. It is a very good question that is sometimes not the easiest to be answered. If there is every any doubt the safest answer is to call the office and we can direct you in the right decision.
- Severe bleeding that doesn’t want to stop within 5 minutes
- Seizures, especially if not stopping
- Difficulty breathing, choking, nonstop coughing/gagging
- Not able to Urinate or pass stool
- If your pet has eaten something poisonous
- Injuries to the eye(s)
- Severe vomiting or diarrhea
- Signs of extreme pain
- Fractured bones
- Allergic Reaction, face swelling, or any other body part
- Attacked and open wounds present
If you would ever be in need of us because of one of these scenarios, we do ask for a call first, but understand if you just come on in. Here at Penn-Ohio we are here to help but please understand we are not an emergency facility. This means if the office is not open, no one is here to see your pet. Also there are times when the office is open but a doctor is not on site. We will always try to give you the best advice possible and are willing to work with you. If you find you need veterinary care and we are not able to assist we recommend two places; 1) Animal Emergency Clinic, in Girard Ohio 330-530-8387, 2) Pittsburgh Specialty Emergency Center, Camp Horne Rd Pittsburgh, PA 412-366-3400.
