Quick Pet Emergency Tips
If you are experiencing a pet emergency, please contact our team immediately. There is no time to lose! Your pet needs professional veterinary care as quickly as possible. If your pet emergency is related to one of the following circumstances, there may be some things that you can do as you make your way to our hospital.
Bufo Toad Poisoning
If your pet has been exposed to Bufo toad poisoning, please rinse out your pet’s mouth immediately. This may help to keep your pet from being exposed to the full amount of the toxin. You will still need to bring your pet to the hospital as quickly as you can. Signs and symptoms: Hyper salivation, disoriented, seizure.
When rinsing your pet’s mouth, tilt your pet head so the nose is facing the ground and rinse the gums with water beginning at the back of the mouth to the front. You may also use a wet cloth. This helps prevent aspiration of the water into the lungs.
If your pet has been poisoned, please call the Pet Poison Helpline or the Animal Poison Control Center on your way to our hospital. They will be able to begin troubleshooting the problem and offer advice that will be invaluable to us when you arrive. Please also bring information about the particular poison ingested, including its name and the amount that was consumed.
