What To Do If You Suspect Your Pet Is Having An Emergency

Pets who are severely injured may act aggressively toward their owners, so it’s important to protect yourself from injury.

For dogs: Approach your pet slowly and calmly; kneel down and say his/her name. If your pet shows signs of aggression, call for help. If he/she’s passive, fashion a makeshift stretcher and gently lift him/her onto it. Take care to support his/her neck and back in case he/she’s suffered any spinal injuries.

For cats: Gently place a blanket or towel over your cat’s head to prevent biting; then slowly lift him/her and place him/her in an open-topped carrier or box. Take care to support his/her head and avoid twisting his/her neck in case he/she’s suffered a spinal injury.

General First Aid

The following has been taken directly from the ASPCA website here.

Most emergencies require immediate veterinary care, but first aid methods may help you stabilize your pet for transportation.

  • If your pet is suffering from external bleeding due to trauma, try elevating and applying pressure to the wound.

  • If your pet is choking, place your fingers in his mouth to see if you can remove the blockage.

  • If you’re unable to remove the foreign object, perform a modified Heimlich maneuver by giving a sharp rap to his chest, which should dislodge the object.

Performing CPR On Your Pet

CPR may be necessary if your pet remains unconscious after you have removed the choking object. First, check to see if he’s breathing. If not, place him on his side and perform artificial respiration by extending his head and neck, holding his jaws closed and blowing into his nostrils once every three seconds. (Ensure no air escapes between your mouth and the pet’s nose.) If you don’t feel a heartbeat, incorporate cardiac massage while administering artificial respiration—three quick, firm chest compressions for every respiration—until your dog resumes breathing on his own.

What To Do If Your Pet Eats Something Poisonous

If you suspect your pet has ingested a toxic substance, please call your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center’s 24-hour hotline at (888) 426-4435*. Trained toxicologists will consider the age and health of your pet, what and how much he ate, and then make a recommendation—such as whether to induce vomiting—based on their assessment. *Fee applies
