How to Care for Your Pet During an Emergency
When you call your 24-hour vet in Windsor after an emergency situation, we'll advise you on what to do before coming to our clinic. Please be careful and cautious in handling your pet after an injury or accident as animals often display their pain by pacing, panting and becoming agitated. If your pet is becoming aggressive, remember to approach slowly and say his or her name before asking a friend or family member for help. For cats, it's often helpful to gently place a blanket or towel over their heads in an effort to calm them.
If your pet is bleeding, elevate the area and apply pressure to the wound. If your pet is choking and you're unable to remove the object with your fingers, try to dislodge the blockage by giving a sharp tap to his or her chest. Lastly, if you see your pet ingest something poisonous or suspect that this has happened, call us at 519-948-7727 or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center's 24-hour hotline at 888-426-4435.
