When to choose a vet visit over home treating your pet

Every pet deserves a loving and respectful home: please only consider acquiring a pet if you will be able to take care of its long-term needs. Also, consider choosing your animal companion from a shelter, where there are so many wonderful furry friends who need a forever home.

In this video, veterinarian Dr. Andrew Jones outlines the clinical situations in which a pet’s health issue, injury or disorder is a strong prompt to take them to the vet.

Topics covered include:

  • Dehydration,
  • Weakness and lethargy,
  • Anemia,
  • Laboured breathing,
  • Severe vomiting and diarrhoea,
  • Pain or distress,
  • Disinterest in eating or drinking,
  • Seizures,
  • Bloat,
  • Jaundice,
  • Bleeding, fractures and obvious emergencies
